"When a language dies, a unique vision of the world is lost forever." (IMDb)

Mexico | 100 minutes | NR | DCP | Dir. Ernesto Contreras

"A young linguist travels to the jungle of Mexico to research and save a mysterious indigenous language. A language, as he discovers, at the point of disappearing since the last two speakers had a fight fifty years ago and refuse to speak a word with each other. Trying to bring the two old friends back together, he discovers that hidden in the past, in the heart of the jungle, lies a secret concealed by the language." (-Rotten Tomatoes)

"Poetic Mexican film raises philosophical questions about what is lost when a language - and by extension, our elders' memory - is allowed to fade away unpreserved." - Peter Debruge (Variety)

 

This event is intended for UW-Madison students, faculty, staff and Union members and guests.
