Our good man Sam Green returns to San Francisco with the world premiere of his half-hr. cine-essay on Esperanto, a ‘world language’ designed to be spoken by all the planet’s peoples, and whose remaining adherents afford an inspiring face of utopianism. After Green’s in-person intro, we look at two other internationalist pieces: Peter Miller’s "L’Internationale," a fascinating—and moving—history of this famous “people’s anthem,” and Philip Stapp’s artful animation Picture in Your Mind, an epic allegory on the human potential for war and peace.
