Film Screening: Those Who Come, Will Hear
Curated by Griffin Art Projects’ Adjunct Curator, Dr. Karen Tam, join us for an online streaming of the first of two feature-length films around language.
Those Who Come, Will Hear (2017, dir. Simon Plouffe) proposes a unique meeting with the speakers of several Indigenous and Inuit languages of Quebec. The film starts with the discovery of these unsung tongues through listening to the daily life of those who still speak them today. Buttressed by an exploration and creation of archives, the film allows us to better understand the musicality of these languages and reveals the cultural and human importance of these venerable oral traditions by nourishing a collective reflection on the consequences of their disappearance.
