The Linguists is...

“A fantastic little film that follows professors David Harrison and Gregory Anderson as they crisscross the globe on a mission to document languages ... The excitement of these two professors proves contagious, and as the film reveals how cultural shame and colonialism have factored in the loss of these languages, their incredible dedication becomes all the more compelling.”

- Vanity Fair

"A breathtaking thrill ride through the landscape of language"

-Noam Chomsky
