Living on One Dollar (2012)

Two economics students studying international development in college try living on $1 a day for two months in rural Guatemala. Approximately 1.2 billion people are now living on $1.00 or less each day. How do they do it? Answer: with difficulty.

They battle intense hunger, parasites and discover that there are no easy answers. But they find inspiration in the lives of their neighbors Rosa, a 20 year old woman, and Chino, a 12 year old boy.

The film won Best Documentary at the Sonoma International Film Festival, the Directorial Debut Award from Washington West Film Festival, and received endorsements from Nobel Laureate Muhammad Yunus, USAID Administrator Rajiv Shah, and the Director of the Hunger Games, Gary Ross.

There will be a discussion afterwards.
