People of Wonder- Noam Chomsky + Michel Gondry

If you're not willing to be puzzled, you just become a replica of someone else's mind.

"Learning comes from asking, 'Why does it work like that instead of some other way?'"

As humans, we take simple physical stimuli, create unique interpretations, organize them into concepts, add emotion to form values, inject judgment to develop the basis of decision-making, and reflect on our general state of consciousness. What does this process of collecting and linking experiences mean in the light of learning to learn? How does a mass of molecules develop intuition? Curiosity? 

We're excited to unpack this epic illustration of thinking with you.

From Michel Gondry, the innovative director of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and The Science of Sleep, comes this unique animated documentary on the life of controversial MIT professor, philosopher, linguist, anti-war activist and political firebrand Noam Chomsky. Through complex, lively conversations with Chomsky and brilliant illustrations by Gondry himself, the film reveals the life and work of the father of modern linguistics while also exploring his theories on the emergence of language. The result is not only a dazzling, vital portrait of one of the foremost thinkers of modern times, but also a beautifully animated work of art.
