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
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 http://www.forteantimes.com
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.
