Four college friends leave the cushy Seattle life to experience and to document what it's like to live below poverty in Living On A Dollar A Day.
They spent spent one summer living on $1 a day in a rural Guatemalan village. They battled intense hunger, parasites and the realization that there are no easy answers.
What really struck me about this doc is how happy the people in this village are and how willing they are to help not only each other, but also four perfect strangers. This film is a testament to the true human spirit.
But, the boys went beyond just a film, they have founded Living On One, a non-profit production and social impact studio that uses immersive
storytelling to create films that inspire action around pressing global
issues with a mission to help bring an end to extreme poverty.
Could you survive on $1 a day?
