Half the world’s languages are on the verge of extinction. Who will record them before they’re gone? David and Greg are scientists racing to document languages on the verge of extinction. In Siberia, India and Bolivia, The Linguists confront head-on the very forces silencing languages: institutionalized racism and violent economic unrest. Their journey takes them deep into the heart of the cultures, knowledge and communities at stake. The enthusiasm of these linguistic detectives is nothing less than contagious. Both funny and enlightening, the film is an amazing cultural journey to some of the most obscure linguistic niches of our planet.
