This documentary asks: 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 a group of Hawaiian activists are fighting to save their native tongue.

3.5 out of 4 stars
"While being realistic about the dominance of English as a primary language, Language Matters also underscores the fact that when we lose native languages, we lose a part of ourselves. Highly recommended." -Video Librarian, July/August 2015
