For your post today, please write a short comment about our discussion in class today about documentary films.
In your response, please comment on whether you think it’s appropriate for a documentary to take a position on an issue or circumstance. Please explain your thinking (why or why not?). Try to include the terms “subjective” and “objective” in your response.
I look forward to your response!
