On the air (U.S.)
January - Language Matters with Bob Holman will be aired on PBS stations nationwide.

Filmed on location in Australia, Wales, and Hawaii, the film provides an intimate look at the lives of speakers of endangered languages and brings new appreciation to the unique role language--including our own--plays in shaping culture."
