    The hand-drawn animation film “Is the Man Who Is Tall Happy?” is comprised of a series of interviews featuring the linguist, philosopher and activist Noam Chomsky. The director Michel Gondry is known for films such as “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” and “The Science of Sleep”. Through complex, lively conversations with Chomsky and brilliant illustrations by Gondry himself, the film reveals the life and work of the father of modern linguistics while also exploring his theories on the emergence of language. The result is not only a dazzling, vital portrait of one of the foremost thinkers of modern times, but also a beautifully animated work of art.
