"'The Linguists' is a hilarious and poignant chronicle of two scientists — David Harrison and Gregory Anderson — racing to document languages on the verge of extinction. In Siberia, India and Bolivia, the linguists confront head-on the very forces silencing languages: racism, humiliation and violent economic unrest. David and Greg's journey takes them deep into the heart of the cultures, knowledge and communities at risk when a language dies." www.pbs.org/thelinguists
After the movie, there will be pizza and discussion with members of ANTH 291: "Introduction to Linguistic Anthropology," CLAS 291: "Introduction to Linguistics" and the Kenyon's linguistics club Lexikon.
