FIRST LANGUAGE - THE RACE TO SAVE CHEROKEE is Emmy award-winning documentary film about current efforts to revitalize the Cherokee language, a vessel of knowledge and identity for the Cherokee people.
The Cherokee Indians of North America were once the dominant power in what is now the Southeastern United States. The creeks, valleys and mountains of Southern Appalachia are reflected in their traditions, and in the rhythm of their speech. Around fourteen thousand Cherokee remain in their ancestral homeland in the mountains of North Carolina, but few among them still speak their native language, and no children are learning the language at home. The Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians is now fighting to revitalize the language and come to terms with their native heritage in the context of the modern United States.

A DW documentary
A production by DW
This year will mark the end of German Chancellor Angela Merkel's time in office. To mark this historic occasion, DW is producing an enthralling documentary that examines how she steered the country through countless international crises — including fascinating interviews with leaders who worked with her on the world stage.
In ANGELA MERKEL: NAVIGATING A WORLD IN CRISIS, DW asks world leaders like former U.S. President George W. Bush, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, former President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev and former French President Francois Hollande about Merkel's brand of politics, her successes and failures. Covering everything from the financial crisis and Brexit to the refugee crisis and the current global pandemic, DW investigates her impact abroad through interviews with the former Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff, former President of Liberia Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, Queen Rania of Jordan, and former EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker. Along with comments from renowned historians such as Niall Ferguson and other experts, these insights provide a lasting picture of Merkel's legacy.

WE ARE THE LAND

Directed by Jesse Dizard
A solar company built a power station in the Mojave desert. The land was home to prehistoric Native American communities. Over the course of thousands of years, many archaeological artifacts accumulated in the area. Those artifacts were displaced and destroyed to make way for the new power plant. This film tells the story of the tribes whose ancestors inhabited that desert basin. Their descendants speak of the pain caused by destruction of their cultural patrimony, and the vitality of the desert landscape for indigenous people. They envision a sustainable future that protects the values of the past.
