1896. On the open sea, a ship sails to Africa. On board an ambitious father, his troubled son, a rebellious young woman, and the uneasy crew. Tensions rise as an unexpected detour resurrects family secrets and reveals true intentions. It is a journey that will change their lives forever.

THE LANGUAGE ARCHIVE

By Julia Cho
Directed by Adriana Baer

MAY 17 – JUNE 11

Can one man speak over 46 languages and still find it impossible to communicate with his wife? Will the last two speakers of a soon to be dead language break their vow of silence? The Language Archive intricately weaves together the struggle of two couples, where regardless of the grandeur of language, it is impossible to say more than what is truly in your heart.
