“Earthlings: Ugly Bags of Mostly Water”


“Documentary about Klingon-speakers to premiere at Cannes.

Titled Earthlings: Ugly Bags of Mostly Water, the documentary captures the lives, passions and quirks of members of the Klingon Language Institute during their annual qep’a (or conference, for you non-Klingon speakers).

KLI members featured in the film include Dr d’Armond Speers, a linguist who spoke only in Klingon to his son until age three and a half, and Rich Yampbell, composer of Klingon national anthem taHaj wo.”
