Every year, the Mother Tongue Film Festival, sponsored by the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, showcases films about indigenous cultures that celebrate cultural and linguistic diversity. Most of these films have been made in indigenous languages from all over the world. VOA’s Penelope Poulou spoke with curators and filmmakers on how these ancient languages are still an integral part of aboriginal cultures today.
