The Linguists – A very Foreign Language Film – 2nd Screening Nov. 2nd

The first showing, at the Roxy Theater this past Sunday was a success! The movie is insightful, well-made, and quite interesting. There will be another screening, and another LGSA get together to see it again, at Shattuck Cinema, in Berkeley, on November 2nd. If you are interested in attending this event, please send an email to, or leave a comment on this post.

To view the trailer for this movie, visit The Linguists website:

Also take the time to read this write-up by the National Science Foundation, who helped fund the film...
"In Siberia, fewer than 25 elderly people speak Chulym, a language spoken for generations by traditional hunter-gatherers and fishermen in small rural villages. In Bolivia, a language once spoken by healers to the Inca emperor is on the verge of extinction. In the Orissa state in the east of India, younger generations no longer speak Sora, a language of the region with a complex and expressive way of putting words together."
