Sam Green Introduces What We Need Is the Impossible!
What We Need Is the Impossible!
Today’s most engaging and inventive directors, producers, and film professionals join us to introduce their work and answer questions after most screenings.
Sam Green (The Weather Underground, Utopia in Four Movements) returns to the Wex to introduce a program of his award-winning shorts, highlighted by his latest film, The Universal Language.
In this whimsical and poignant look at the history and legacy of Esperanto, Green traces the utopian universal language, from its creation by Polish doctor Ludovic Zamenhof as a path toward world peace in the late 1800s to a contemporary conference of Esperanto speakers in Yokohama, Japan. Other films in the program include The Fabulous Stains: Behind the Movie (1999), lot 63, grave c (2006), Clear Glasses (2008), and more! (80 mins., video)
