One Word is a series of micro-documentaries in development stage that tell the stories of single words rescued by visionary indigenous youth, from languages on the brink of being forgotten, as medicine for our ailing relationship with the earth.
The series, whose primary audience is also youth will be launched in the fall of 2019 on the occasion of the UNESCO International Year of Indigenous Languages. The director, Natasha Deganello Giraudie, has produced hundreds of humanitarian micro-documentaries in more than 30 countries. She has also iterated on an outreach methodology that has enabled her films to be seen by expansive audiences, which she will apply to this series as well.
Through individual personal stories, this series proposes to shed light on biocultural wisdom which has never been so timely and to inspire action in support of a better future for generations to come.
