Better late

I apologize to our UK readers for not posting this notice before the premiere at SOAS on May 17 of The Last Speakers,

[a] documentary film on endangered languages [that] shows the work of David Harrison and Gregory Anderson on the language of the Ös people who live in log-cabin villages in central Siberia, 3,500 km east of Moscow.

David Harrison is based at Swarthmore, and there will surely be some U.S. showings, which I'll try to write about before they happen rather than after. (And maybe there'll be an online version at some point, to reach the many interested people who won't be lucky enough to be in the audiences?)
