In my Film Club, some kids were having a discussion and some felt that silent films required more creativity and visual power than a sound film, and I had never heard of someone actually PREFERRING silent to sound. Many told me they felt silent films were a technological drawback until sound films (the way cinema should be appreciated they say). What do you think?

"Give us back our beauty" - D.W. Griffith after the invention of sound eliminated silent cinema
