Sundance Selects has picked up North American rights to the animated documentary Is The Man Who Is Tall Happy?, about the oft lightning-rod professor, linguist and political philosopher Noam Chomsky. The film, which is world premiering as the closing-night selection of next month’s DOC NYC Festival, is animated by Gondry and peels back the the life and work of Chomsky, focusing on his theory of the emergence of language. “This film is another genius creation from Michel Gondry, whose collaboration with the legendary Noam Chomsky has resulted a film that is both intellectually challenging and creatively brilliant”, said Jonathan Sehring, President of Sundance Selects/IFC Films. “Chomsky has never discussed his work in such a unique and memorable way.” The deal was negotiated with WME Independent on behalf of the filmmakers.
