“The Image and Sound of Multilingualism” by The Language Project
For SUBTITLES please press the relevant button on the YouTube window above!
Watch 15 people express themselves in their mother tongue or in a language they love. They share their linguistic experiences, emotions and aspirations in a short video that aims to promote multilingualism and to capture the feelings behind unfamiliar sounds. During an amusing two-day shooting set, we brought together students, bilinguals, translators and interpreters, future tour guided and… chefs!
This participatory video aspires to activate people to become more open to anything different, not to be ashamed to speak despite making mistakes, and to dare to learn something new, such as a foreign language. Apart from the sounds and words of the new language, you can also be introduced to the culture and the people behind it.
