There's also "Angoroj", shot in France about the same time. I never saw it
so I'm not sure it was a full-length film though. We had "Incubus" on TV
one month ago in France (unfortunately, it was on Canal+, a crypted
channel, and I don't have it :( . I can ask some friends of mine who happen
to be Esperantists, I'm sure they have recorded it, if someone's
interested...)
