The Linguists

In this 2008, Emmy-nominated documentary, director Seth Kramer follows a pair of language scholars as they journey through rugged lands in order to find isolated civilizations and hear rare tongues. The linguists, who speak a combined two dozen languages themselves, go to Siberia to listen to a language that will likely disappear in the next few decades. They trek to India to explore how English colonists altered the nation's culture, and they visit the American Southwest to talk with Native Americans.

Hours: Monday-Saturday 10am-4pm. Closed Sundays and major holidays.
