Is the Man Who Is Tall Happy?
director:
Michel Gondry
cast:
Noam Chomsky, Michel Gondry

An animated conversation with linguist, philosopher and activist Noam Chomsky, hand-drawn by visionary filmmaker Michel Gondry. The ‘talking-head’ formula is given a makeover by one of the most imaginative filmmakers working today as he interprets and animates intellectual discussions with one of the greatest minds at work today. “Imagine a doozy of an office-hours audience with the most brilliant professor you never had, set inside a kaleidoscopic lightboard of a shares mind-space, where everything that professor says is illustrated in pulsing, wheeling, mercurial cartoons.” (Village Voice)
