Prezento che itala kongreso en Policoro (Matera): vendrede 1/09/2017 je la 15.00: Nicola Minnaja prezentos la filmon kaj prelegos pri Clarence

Yes, that's Esperanto that Clarence loved so much and worked so hard on. The esperanto version of our video will have its World Premier at the Italian Esperanto Association's Congress at Molicoro (Matera) Southern Italy on 1st September at 15h00. Thank you to Michela Lipari for the information. Nicola Minnaja will lecture on Clarence Bicknell at the same event.

The screening in Edinburgh at the British Esperanto Congress last month was a sneak preview. By "World Premier" I mean that the Esperanto version will be released on the internet on the same day. Tune in to www.vimeo.com/clarencebicknell then.

 

 

We are proud to announce the completion of the Esperanto version of the documentary film on Clarence Bicknell. Thanks to the energies and peristence of Esperanto supporters Michela Lipari (Director of the Italian Esperanto Association) and Humphrey Tonkin (President & University Professor of the Humanities, Emeritus, Hartford University, USA), <La Mirindaĵoj de Clarence Bicknell> has been voiced into Esperanto by Wera Blanke, Bill Chapman and Angela Tellier. Rémy and I (Marcus Bicknell) are proud to provide to the Esperanto community worldwide a precious memento of Clarence Bicknell's love for and support of the universal language.
 
The response from the Esperanto community (there are about 100,000 of them worldwide) has been remarkable. The film will be projected at Esperanto congresses in Scotland, South Korea and Italy in the next few months; details below. It will be released to the public on the internet free of charge on 26 August 2017 (and available before that dates for media review or academic purposes, This email address is being protected from spambots.
