New Documentary: The Universal Language

Academy Award–nominated director Sam Green ('The Weather Underground')
has a new documentary out about Esperanto and language studies. 'The Universal
Language' traces Esperanto from its conception in Poland amid other burgeoning
nineteenth century Utopian movements through two disastrous world wars,
Stalinist suppression, and the rise of globalization. Drawing equally
from archival
footage and interviews with present-day speakers and linguists, the
film portrays a
movement full of optimism and humor, as well as a vital curiosity
about language’s
ability to influence society, culture, and the power structures around
them. The film
is available for classroom use.
