A Program of Short Films by Sam Green

Visiting Filmmakers

Rising stars and acclaimed masters come to screen their films and talk with Wexner Center audiences.

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)
