Sundance Selects has just released the official trailer from Michel Gondry's upcoming animated documentary Is the Man Who Is Tall Happy?: An Animated Conversation with Noam Chomsky, opening in theaters Friday, November 22nd in New York and Los Angeles. The film will also be available on iTunes and other VOD formats. Take a look at the first footage from this innovative film, where conversations between Michel Gondry and Noam Chomsky are brought to life through animation.
Noam Chomsky brings to life a series of conversations that Michel Gondry had with Professor Chomsky over a period of time. Through Gondry's inventive animation, we are taken on a journey as he comes to understand the process and logic behind Noam's stream of ideas ultimately bringing us to Chomsky's theory on the emergence of language. Through it all, Gondry is able to give us a greater sense of Professor Chomsky as a man and of his deep humanity.
