Language Matters

Premiered January 2015

There are over 6,000 languages in the world. We lose one every two weeks. By the end of this century, half of the world’s languages will have vanished. Language Matters with Bob Holman is a two hour documentary that asks: What do we lose when a language dies? What does it take to save a language?

Language Matters is a co-production of David Grubin Productions and Pacific Islanders in Communications. Major funding provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities with additional funding provided by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the Arthur Vining Davis Foundations, the National Endowment for the Arts.
