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?
