Plena Rondo -Leaving Language- Global Screening Day  
Saturday 21st October 2017
Call out for your participation

PLENA RONDO Global Screening Day kicks off at FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology) in Liverpool, UK a discussion about the meaning of language, it’s place and power in our globalised society.

Multiple screenings will be hosted by people who would like to take part, anywhere in the world, on 21st October, 2017 within a 24 hour period, local time.

Synopsis: This film follows a Japanese performance artist, on a sixty-day experiment to master the world’s easiest and most egalitarian language, Esperanto, using only free learning tools. Subsequently the experiment takes us on a journey from Japan to Buenos Aires on an exploration of the political, philosophical and personal beliefs of many of the people at the heart of this social/linguistic movement. On this journey we discover how English becomes the international language and the process of how languages die out. The film leaves us with many questions regards the place and power of language in a globalised yet increasingly unequal world.
