The Last Silent Movie (2007)

Video DVD. 20 min. 24 etchings. 37 x 42,5 cm. Courtesy: Timothy Taylor Gallery, London.

Susan Hiller's film is a core piece in understanding the way in which this project engages with Llingua, or indeed any other minority language, as a place for the production of cultural and political space, and also of history and domination. Hiller maintains that what we hear in her film without images, but with subtitles, are not mute or dead languages because there is somebody listening. Researching in archives of extinct or almost extinct languages, she liberates the ghosts and spectres of now mostly dead people. Some sing, others tell stories or recite lists of words, crying out to the listeners, directly or indirectly, for justice.
