Goethe Pop Up Houston: Film Screening of "All Güt Things"

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 Güt 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.
