Between November 1931 and January 1934 the readers of the French communist daily L'Humanit were invited to become their own film critics. Over the years more than 100 films were critically examined in print by ordinary cinemagoers. Bert Hogenkamp tells the story of this rare experiment, which briefly gave a voice to those many who may make history but seldom get a chance to write it.
