This Peabody Award-winning look at American accents and their social implications is both a proven crowd-pleaser and a unique window on the way we judge people by the way they talk. AMERICAN TONGUES goes to the streets and the countryside to listen to American English in all its diversity and color.
AMERICAN TONGUES comes in two versions. The Standard Version is 56 minutes long and is the preferred version of the film. The High School Version is 40 minutes long. Only high schools are eligible to purchase the High School Version. Both versions include public performance rights.
