Is the man who is tall happy? An Animated Conversation with Noam Chomsky

Through a series of interviews, Michel Gondry illustrates Noam Chomsky’s theories in an animated documentary, where Gondry’s creativity and imagination serve Chomsky’s intellectual rigour. Chomsky has a memory, a knowledge of siences and history, a logic that are both unrivaled and overwhelming, but that are revealed to us by the means of Gondry’s naive yet complex animation drawings. The lively, sometimes intricated, often touching and always very humane dialogue with Chomsky is depicted naturally by the stream of Gondry’s subjective animation. Using animated drawings, Michel Gondry brings to light Noam Chomsky both as an eminent professor and as a man.
