Film Screening: The Linguists

Mon, Oct 9, 7:00 pm
IU Cinema

On October 9, the IU Cinema will be screaning The Linguists. This film details efforts at preserving dying languages.

The Linguists is an engaging and unpredictable film on the subject of language diversity and endangered languages. It follows two scientists as they race around the world to document languages on the verge of extinction, in places such as Siberia, India, and Bolivia. By turns funny, suspenseful, and moving, and with a vibrant soundtrack, it conveys both the value of human cultural diversity and the urgency of attempts to enable the survival of traditional cultures. In English, Spanish, and Russian with English subtitles.

The event is free, but ticketed. See the IU Cinema website or the link above for more information.
