Screening - Language Matters with Bob Holman

  • 15A Argyle Place Millers Point, NSW, 2000 Australia (map)

What do we lose when a language dies? What does it take to save a language?

Language Matters was filmed around the world: on a remote island off the coast of Australia where 400 Aboriginal people speak 10 different languages, all at risk; in Wales, where Welsh, once in danger, is today making a comeback; and in Hawaii, where Hawaiians are fighting to save their native tongue.

“Language is the very essence of being human,” says Holman, “and when we lose a language, we lose a part of ourselves.”
