The Tailenders is a feature-length documentary written and directed by Los Angeles-based independent filmmaker Adele Horne. The film introduces viewers to Global Recordings Network (GRN), an evangelical Christian missionary organization devoted to translating Bible stories into all of the languages of the world. Focusing on oral transmission by working with native speakers of indigenous languages, GRN makes recordings of the stories and distributes them in low-tech formats using “hand-crank” technologies. The film emphasizes the linkages between Christian missionary groups and processes of capitalist globalization, between Protestant values and the technologies of modernity.
