democracynow – At the premier of the new animated film “Is the Man Who Is Tall Happy?” in New York City, Noam Chomsky joined filmmaker Michel Gondry in conversation. We play excerpts of Chomsky’s remarks on his educational background and his reflections on “Manufacturing Consent,” another feature-length film about him from 1992. One of the filmmakers behind the movie, Peter Wintonick, died last month on November 18.

Animating Noam Chomsky: French Director Michel Gondry on New Film “Is the Man Who Is Tall Happy?”

democracynow on Dec 3, 2013

www.democracynow.org – French filmmaker Michel Gondry joins Democracy Now! for an extended interview about his unusual new film, “Is the Man Who Is Tall Happy?” It is an animated representation of Gondry’s conversations with the legendary political dissident, linguist, author and MIT professor, Noam Chomsky. The innovative documentary introduces viewers to Chomsky’s theories and ideas through a series of conversations brought to life by Gondry’s vibrant, hand-drawn animations. As Chomsky speaks, Gondry’s rapidly moving pencil illustrates his words. The men discuss everything from Chomsky’s pioneering work in childhood language acquisition to his views on education, religion and astrology. Gondry’s past films include the Academy Award-winning “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” the musical documentary “Dave Chapelle’s Block Party” and “The Science of Sleep.” He has also directed dozens of music videos by artists including Bjork, Kanye West, Paul McCartney and the Rolling Stones.
