According to a CBCNews.ca article, a sci-fi film is being shot in Prince Rupert, BC completely in the Tsilhqot’in (Chilcotin) language. Thanks to James Crippen of the Zero Morpheme blog for sending this alert out to members of his ATHAPBASCKAN-L list.

Mentioned in the CBC article above is the imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival which showcases film and new media works by indigenous peoples.

    Did you ever see Mel Gibson’s film, Apocalypto, in which all the dialog is in Mayan? I thought it was quite good.

      I still haven’t see that, mostly because I’m not really into his stuff. I haven’t heard much about the reception of the film by native Mayan speakers or linguists. I know it was written in Yucatec Mayan.
      I haven’t seen Passion of the Christ either, though I’d be interested in knowing how much Aramaic I can understand from knowing a lot of Modern and a little Biblical Hebrew.

    I haven’t seen The Passion of the Christ, and I’m not really sure I want to, hahae. But if you do, let us know what you thought about the use of Aramaic (and Latin).
