Zach Ingrasci and Chris Temples’ journey began in 2010 when they — along with two other university students — took two cameras and spent their summer living on one dollar a day in a rural Guatemalan village. Their academic and professional understanding of economic development didn’t prepare them for what they would go through. All four students battled intense hunger, parasites, and the realization that there are no easy answers. But the strength of neighbors and friends gave them hope that there are effective ways to make a difference. While in Guatemala, they released short YouTube videos about the experience to help their friends learn alongside them in real time. The videos quickly received more than 700,000 views, inspiring them to complete a feature-length film, “Living on One Dollar.” The film won Best Documentary at the Sonoma International Film Festival and received endorsements from Nobel Laureate Muhammad Yunus, U.S. Agency for International Development Administrator Rajiv Shah, and the director of the “Hunger Games,” Gary Ross.
