Living On One Dollar & The Change Series
Living on One Dollar is a full-length documentary made by four college students who traveled to rural Guatemala to live on just a dollar a day. Upon their return, they created Living On One, a nonprofit to raise awareness and inspire action around global issues like hunger and poverty -- and started by publishing the Change Series of video shorts. Each episode not only succinctly frames an issue faced by people in the developing world and makes it personal, but also offers resource links to learn more -- and even better -- to do something about it. On this website, you will find links to these videos as well as additional resources for teaching about poverty.
A collection of eight documentaries and 34 short films by award-winning filmmakers and emerging talent. The films are subtle, moving and thought-provoking stories that tackle big issues and pose the difficult question WHY POVERTY?
