Yup! I'm a student at Swarthmore College, where one of the linguists in the
film (K. David Harrison) is currently a professor. He did a showing of the
film at the end of last year. It's fairly good; as you might expect, it's
intended for a non-linguistically-inclined audience, but accomplishes fairly
well exactly what it set out to do: Highlights the issues of language death
for the general public. Worth a viewing, I'd say.
