Iona-Sky's latest Esperanto film round up. 11th - 15 Dec 2016
This is probably the last round up before the holidays as my schedule looks pretty full (another way of saying absolutely crazy), and I am never going to have time to watch and review as well, but i guess I should never say never so we'll see.
On with the reviews.
So having looked at a simple explanation by Evildea of igi and iĝi last week, at Salivanto's recommendation i took a look at another one this week. It is very long for a youtube video, (38 minutes) and it is entirely delivered in Esperanto which may be an issue if you are just coming to terms with the language BUT it seems to be a film of a lecture by the one and only Bertilo - so the authority level is through the roof, nay, the stratosphere https://youtu.be/aFNoWjTtLVQ
A duolingo user who is also a youtuber mentioned on these boards he was doing his first video in the Esperanto language about the various reactions to his conversion to islam - so as your intrepid reviewer i headed over to see what it was like. Funny, sweet, short film - he talks as fast as Evildea - and i never thought i would say that about a beginner IMhO its great to listen to. https://youtu.be/M2vQwIPbVRQ
Alex Miller ( apologies for any previously incorrectly spelled mentions - my bad) gives a nice tour of the A words (adjectives and the like) along with some pretty dire puns. Worth a watch as always. https://youtu.be/N67akwtfov8
Short film, aimed at children about animals. https://youtu.be/5h-viYvYDL8
Not a film but someone pointed me at an esperanto table-top RPG site, played with real dice, and it made me so happy I just thought I'd share. Yep, just outed myself as a complete and utter, hard core nerd, as if learning Esperanto wasn't enough. :-) http://drakoj.ikso.net/
Also not a film but with Christmas around the corner it wouldn't be the same without a rousing rendition of the Messiah now would it? Its done in sections as well as the full oratorio so you can skip straight to the hallelujah chorus, if that's your thing. http://novajhoj.weebly.com/mesio-projekto.html
Evildea talks about the international cultural differences in a business environment and who does/doesn't show emotion https://youtu.be/M3xFMeQxwq8
Yet more proof ( from Airvian) that Esperanto Youtubers often have cats. https://youtu.be/-b4hHD0PIz8
Zamenhof day (December 15th ) gave us a flurry of #EsperantoLives videos. Here are a small selection by our regular providers and some others I randomly came across. There were so many i couldn't possibly watch them all.
Robert Nielsen did a good job of curating them into lists, overall and by native language so you can look for those if you want to on his channel. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLoszEcyUpiSkzby0nOnwS4ZA84B6PvXi5 These are the first few I saw
