Slightly off-topic, but it may be of interest to some... I read the following in the latest copy of Fortean Times: "RARE REVIVAL: Fox Lorber films re-released 'Incubus' - the only feature film made in Esperanto - on video and DVD in May. Directed by Leslie ('Outer Limits') Stevens and starring William ('Star Trek') Shatner, Incubus was made in 1965 and disappeared without trace. It's about a man who battles the forces of evil on an island inhabited by demons and spirits; and it's in black and white. As more people speak Klingon than Esperanto, the film will have subtitles." I've only heard of one other film with all the dialogue in a dead or constructed language - Derek Jarman's 'Sebastian'. Are there any other such films? Fortean Times is always worth a visit, as it often carries snippets about secret or constructed languages, scripts and codes, etc. The website is at And please note that I am quoting that last sentence in the article, so Esperantists should direct all flames to the journalist who wrote it, not me.
