New Short Film in Esperanto- “A Universal Love Story” (“Universala amrakonto”)

“A Universal Love Story” is a short fantasy drama about the possibility of finding love in an impersonal world in the distant future, where everyone is so focused on himself, that it seems almost impossible to connect to another person.

All that’s left is the memory of love and the hope to experience it one more time. It seems that sometimes it takes a miracle from a different universe to start a revolution.


As the title suggests, it is a universal story about characters with different backgrounds in an undefined time and space. It is a very visual and symbolic film that can be watched several times and each time, one can find a different meaning.

“A Universal Love Story” is one of the few films shot in Esperanto. I chose Esperanto, because it helps the idea of creating something universal in an unknown future, spreading love around the world and making people communicate with each other again. And who knows maybe in the future Esperanto will take over the world! I think it’s a beautiful language with a lot of potential.


“A Universal Love Story” was only shot this week and already attracted a lot of attention!
