pleasing films about language and migration
This is rather off-topic but I feel frivolous this evening and wanted to share with you two very pleasing short films about translation in the sense of the translation of self between languages. 'Fluent Dysphasia' and 'Yu Ming is ainm dom' (My name is Yu Ming) are two quite different films but are both preoccupied with language, identity and communication. They can be found at the Atom Films site at http://www.atom.com/funny_videos/fluent_dysphasia/ and http://www.atom.com/funny_videos/name_yu_ming/.
