Lena Hertzog: Last Whispers

2/24/2019 at 6:00 PM


A Sundance Film Festival 2019 New Frontier special feature, Lena Hertzog: Last Whispers is a project about the mass extinction of languages—the unprecedented disappearance of our linguistic diversity, which, by definition, occurs in silence, since silence is the very form it takes. The performance includes a virtual reality experience.

Free general admission tickets--up to two per person—will be distributed in the States Gallery, beginning at 5 p.m.
