Michel Gondry‘s animated documentary Is The Man Who Is Tall Happy? will world premiere as the closing night selection at the DOC NYC Festival next month. For the film, the French helmer recorded conversations with professor, linguist and political philosopher and activist Noam Chomsky on his theory of the emergence of language. That sounds terribly high-brow, but Gondry’s hand-drawn animation lends a sense of whimsy to the deep-thought proceedings. Sundance Selects has North American rights. Here’s the trailer:
