Ongota is a story of a one man’s mission to save a dying language. Italian linguist, Graziano Savà, travels to a remote corner of Ethiopia to live and work with the twelve last remaining speakers of the Ongota language. When they die, the language dies. Graziano’s solution to save Ongota from extinction is to transform it from an oral to a written language. It’s a struggle against time.
