The Screen Guide

In a remote river system in Brazil's Amazon Basin live the last 300 members of the Piraha tribe. To western eyes, they are some of the most remarkable humans on earth. For 30 years, Linguistics Professor Daniel Everett attempted to understand these truly happy people who have no words for colours, numbers or time, nor any fiction, art, or memories of their predecessors. In THE GRAMMAR OF HAPPINESS he sets out to prove his ground breaking theories – can the language we speak actually define the way we think?
