The Linguists speak

 

Film, Documentaries

  • "The Linguists" is an independent American documentary film about the extinction of languages (and associated cultures) throughout the world, screened at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival, the largest independent cinema festival in the US.
    Reuters/Hollywood Reporter: "Indiana Jones' spirit certainly infects the intrepid heroes of "The Linguists." These are bold academics who plunge into the jungles and backwater villages of the world to rescue living tongues about to go extinct.There are more than 7,000 languages spoken in the world. Yet we lose a language every two weeks thanks to colonialization, globalization and indifference. David Harrison and Gregory Anderson are scientists in a race against time. They trek deep into sometimes dangerous territories to record nearly dead languages, a thing that is at the heart of culture and knowledge..." -  Directed by Seth Kramer, Daniel A. Miller & Jeremy Newberger; 2008, 65 minutes.
