Is the Man Who Is Tall Happy?, Michel Gondry’s forthcoming documentary on the linguist and philosopher Noam Chomsky, looks fabulous. In the trailer, released this week, we hear Gondry and Chomsky discuss inquisitiveness, happiness, and the power of language, all backed by surreal, constantly evolving animations.

After a bit of Chomsky’s theorizing about words and willow trees near the opening, we get an interjection from Gondry: “As you can see, I felt a bit stupid here.”

Watch the trailer above.
