1. La Limonada (The Lemonade) is the largest slum in Latin America outside of Brazil. 60,000 people are crammed into a steep ravine one-mile in length. Police do not enter and when there's a murder, gov't officials responsible for investigation refuse to go in. Our crew spent a week in La Limonada getting the stories of some of the residents. In this brief clip you'll meet a few of those people. Expanded stories will be woven into the slum documentary we are working on.

  2. I shot this community several years ago, long before the idea of doing this documentary on slums began. These people live between the city sewer, cemetary and dump: "The Triangle of Death." The area is on the outskirts of Chinandega, Nicaragua.

  3. Go from outer space to the bridge on the outskirts of Metro Manila to see where one family lives in abject poverty. This family is part of the one billion that lives on a few bucks a day. This little clip uses footage from the ongoing Slum Documentary Film Project at slumdoc.com

  4. This simple video is made from photos taken on a recent trip to Manila to film a family living in a slum community. The footage shot there is part of a bigger project, a documentary film about the global issue of slums. You can learn more about the project at slumdoc.com. We are filming three families on three continents as we explore this issue. Right now one billion people (that's one in six of us) lives in a slum. Our documentary film will introduce you to some of them.
