Congratulations on this. Will anything be made of the angle that 2008 is
International Year of Languages? Seems like a nice and natural tie-in.  (See

We are nothing short of elated to announce that our documentary feature 
THE LINGUISTS was selected to world premiere in the newly 
minted "Spectrum: Documentary Spotlight" category at the 2008 Sundance 
Film Festival. 
 
THE LINGUISTS is the first documentary supported by the National Science 
Foundation to ever make it to Sundance.
 
The trailer is at http://www.thelinguists.com. Here's a brief synopsis:
 
It is estimated that of 7,000 languages in the world, half will be gone by 
the end of this century.
 
THE LINGUISTS follows David Harrison and Gregory Anderson, scientists 
racing to document languages on the verge of extinction. In Siberia, 
India, and Bolivia, the linguists' resolve is tested by the very forces 
silencing languages: institutionalized racism and violent economic unrest. 
 
David and Greg's journey takes them deep into the heart of the cultures, 
knowledge, and communities at risk when a language dies.
 
We hope you can join us in Utah for one (or maybe all) of the following 
screenings:
 
Friday, January 18, 12 Noon - Egyptian Theatre, Park City
Saturday, January 19, 12:45 PM - Broadway Centre Cinemas V, Salt Lake City
Saturday, January 19, 11:30 PM - Prospector Square Theatre, Park City
Wednesday, January 23, 9:00 AM, Holiday Village Cinema I, Park City - 
PRESS AND INDUSTRY ONLY
Wednesday, January 23, 8:30 PM - Holiday Village Cinema II, Park City
 
Tickets are available at http://www.sundance.org/festival/.
 
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us or our 
publicist Winston Emano at wemano at tcdm-associates.com.
 
We look forward to hearing you there, in all languages!
 
Happy Holidays,
Seth Kramer, Daniel A. Miller, and Jeremy Newberger
