The Last Silent Movie

Susan Hiller

The Last Silent Movie, opens the unvisited, silent archives of extinct and endangered languages to create a composition of voices that are not silent. In The Last Silent Movie, some of these voices sing, some tell stories, some recite vocabulary lists and some of them, directly or indirectly, accuse us, the listeners, of injustice.
