Pizza and Movie Theme Semester Event

The Linguists (Film)

Scientists estimate that of 7,000 languages in the world, half will be gone by the end of this century. On average, one language disappears every two weeks.

THE LINGUISTS joins David Harrison and Gregory Anderson, scientists racing to document languages on the verge of extinction. David and Greg’s ’round-the-world journey takes them deep into the heart of the cultures, knowledge, and communities at stake.

THE LINGUISTS world premiered at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival. The only film funded by the National Science Foundation ever at Sundance, THE LINGUISTS has since screened at more than thirty festivals worldwide.
