Mar 28, 2012

Mark Hucko dedicated his life to the invention of a new language with which he hoped to unite all Slav people. He claims his Slovio, ‘a Slavic esperanto’, can be innately understood by some 400 million people ‘from the Baltic to the Balkans and the borders of Finland to those of Japan. Say Hello in Slovio travels through this divided territory to test his incredible claim and finds a world not quite ready to run with his utopian dream.
