All Güt Things (2019)


When a local dialect disappears,
what goes along with it?

Texas
German, a unique German dialect developed in Central Texas, was once a thriving
language with over 110,000 dominant speakers during its peak in the early 20th
century. Today, however, it’s on the verge of extinction.

 

In partnership with the Czech Center Museum Houston, the Goethe
Pop Up Houston presents All G
üt Things, a newly completed documentary by Chase Honaker that chronicles the story
of the
19th century immigration of Germans to Texas and
the unique dialect that was born from it.

 

The screening will be accompanied by a talk from the
filmmakers as well as a discussion around the Texas German and Texas Czech
dialects and their preservation.
