Description

The movie poses philosophical questions about what is lost when a language and by extension our elders’ memory is allowed to fade away unpreserved. In a world of globalization, endangered primitive languages represent different ways of seeing and understanding the world, perspectives that are lost when we fail to show sufficient curiosity in the generations and cultures that have come before. Sueño en otro idioma/I dream in another language also deals with language and its power to unite, divide, create and elevate, as well with broader concepts like memory, regret, and forgiveness.

The film will be followed by a discussion led by Luis Rodriguez Cortes – a faculty member in the Modern Languages and Literatures Department.
