Have you yet met the Mormons? If you are eager to meet them again, and again, and again, you can now do it without the burden of buying a cinema ticket, downloading on iTunes, Amazon, etc., or subscribing to Netflix. We’re happy to report that YouTube, the great democratizer of online video, is currently carrying critically acclaimed documentary Meet the Mormons in 24 different languages:

Because I’m a europhile, this is what the language representation looks like on a map.

Meet the Mormons Languages

Yes, I’ve been naughty and conflated Dutch and Flemish. Sue me. Also, I’m just playing to the anglophone part of Ireland. Galway, you shall not pass. And even though “Moldovan” is regarded as its own language by the Moldovan government, let’s be real. It’s Romanian. Get over yourself, Chisinau.

Admittedly, I find the inclusion of Romanian and Bulgarian curious. That’s not to diminish the value of either — it’s great for these speakers to get a movie in their language — but Ukraine and Albania both have stakes (i.e. members), yet there is no translation for those languages. Oh well. (For some reason I bothered to carve out the more russophone part of Ukraine. How Putin of me.)

Also, Crimea is part of Ukraine. Remember that, everyone.

Sorry, asiaphiles, but I assume you can all visualize China, Japan, and Korea on a map.

But act fast! Meet the Mormons will only be on YouTube from Nov. 6-22 and then it’s gone and you will be forced to find it again by other means. Piracy is a no-no, but we checked anyway, and there’s no torrent of the film. I’m not sure if this is a blessing or a slight. After all, do we want to live in a world where we can’t Popcorn Time Meet the Mormons??

You can watch the English version of the film below! Watch all of it. It’ll give us 72 minutes of site traffic!
