Summary note
"Wawa peeks at the anxieties and difficulties of communication through the interactions between speakers of an endangered indigenous language, each from differing cultural backgrounds and generations. By transforming the chronology of the language, it weaves the past and present into a single entity and confronts various modes of conversation, translation, identity, and history" -- Website.
