New Indie Doc — “Living On One Dollar”

Published On May 3, 2013 | By Mike Carroll | Filmmakers

Every now and then a film organization reaches out to me to help spread the word about their film. This one sounds interesting. And it’s from a new website that’s geared to independent filmmakers.

This sounds like a very intriguing organization that I would be interested in being a part of.

Please read about this very compelling documentary film, made with a lot of soul — and a lot of guts. I think these people are worth checking it out.

Living On One Dollar

Four college students, one video camera, 56 dollars for 56 days in a rural Guatemalan village, and the inspiration to challenge our generation make a difference.

Four university students spent our summer living on one dollar a day in Guatemala, cultivating the earth and living in extreme poverty alongside their neighbors in a rural village.  They tell the stories of their own experiences, and those of their Guatemalan neighbors and friends in this powerful documentary.  Their goal is to inspire us to confront global poverty and provide specific opportunities for people everywhere to fight poverty.
