Disappearing

Andrina Mračnikar
Roughly ninety percent of the inhabitants in southern Carinthia spoke Slovenian prior to 1910. The average percentage today is in the single digits. In her essayistic documentary, Andrina Mračnikar gives a personal shape to a highly political urgency. What happens when a first language is taken from daily life? What must politics do to counter the disappearance of a language whose protection is established in the constitution? (Astrid Peterle, Diagonale)
