Hiwwe wie Driwwe accompanies Douglas Madenford on a search for the roots of PA Dutch through his American homeland and through the Palatinate. On this trip he meets a cook in America who prepares pig stomach and an instructor who teaches PA-Dutch. In Germany he meets the linguist Dr. Michael Werner, who has been working intensively with PA-Dutch for many years, and Christian “Chako” Habekost, who is a Palatine comedian and also known beyond the borders of the Palatine linguistic area.
Producer and director Benjamin Wagener: “When I first read about people speaking our home dialect in America, I could hardly believe it. I wanted to know more and after a lot of research I found out that there was no film about it either. We had to change that.”
