The second film involving multiple actors that is filmed entirely in Disfodish; the artificial language I use to point out the ways language both unite and alienates us from others. At the URL above you will find the Disfodish text as well as the various ways it can be translated. The intention will be to include screenshots and the ways I realised this filmically. The other actor involved in the project was Jonathan Shepherd who travelled up to Ghent from Paris to participate in the first project filmed at the NAXTŠKIMIS VILMIT studios in Ghent.

A PDF version of the complete text with the two ways of translating the text can be found at the following URL: http://www.nachtschimmen.eu/_PDF/ED.pdf.

A couple of screenshots are included from the film, which is followed by the complete text:
