Most importantly, The Crisis of my Friends also involves meetings where interviewees and other attendants discuss the ideas and issues presented in these episodes. To date, four of these meetings have taken place. The opinions expressed and the conversations that take place at these meetings determine the content of the following episode in the series. This results in a project that is much more than a documentary. It is an ongoing conversation.
