The Unspeakable Speaking

Das Unsagbare Sagen

Austria, 1992


The focus of this documentary film was the Pentecostal movement in America. A film used glossolalia to examine speech without apparent meaning. By examining speech defects, literary texts and the babbling of babies, forms of articulation for which normal linguistic logic plays no role were explored.
