THE LINGUISTS (www.thelinguists.com) 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.
THE LINGUISTS world premiered at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival, screened at more than 40 festivals worldwide, and aired on PBS in 2009. THE LINGUISTS is produced and directed by Seth Kramer, Daniel A. Miller, and Jeremy Newberger of Ironbound Films. For more information, visit www.thelinguists.com and www.ironboundfilms.com.
