My Grandmother’s Lingo

Angelina Joshua fights to save her language or ‘lingo’, ‘Marra’ – one of the oldest languages in the world.

My Grandmother’s Lingo is an interactive animation integrating voice activation technology and gaming, narrated by a young Aboriginal woman, Angelina Joshua. Angelina is from remote Northern Australia where she fights to save her language or ‘lingo’, ‘Marra’ – one of the oldest languages in the world. Angelina is determined to learn after her father and grandmother died, but time is running out as only three people are left who speak Marra. Throughout the interactive you are prompted by games to use your microphone and speak Angelina’s language. 90% of Australian languages are critically endangered, and hold 60,000 years of cultural knowledge.
