Living on one Dollar

This award-winning documentarydirected, produced and edited by Chris Temple, Zach Ingrasci, Sean Leonard and Ryan Christoffersonhas been called “A Must Watch” by Nobel Laureate Muhammad Yunus and The Hunger Games director Gary Ross. Living on One Dollar follows four friends as they try to live on just $1 a day for two months in rural Guatemala. These utterly lovable university students, the age my children could be, create a clever lottery system to replicate not only the meager resources but also the unpredictability of income experienced by rural workers. An unimaginable reality for most young Americans, these four friends attempt to survive life on the edge as they battle hunger, parasites and extreme financial stress, challenges that plague more than 1.1 billion people around the world. While they quickly learn that there are no easy answers, the generosity and strength of Rosa, a twenty-year-old woman, and Chino, a twelve-year-old boy, give them resilient hope that there are effective ways to make a difference. Join Zach and Chris as they narrate this gripping journey of understanding. You will come away with a deep empathy for the people of Peña Blanca and feel empowered that you can change the world.
