Living On One Dollar - Free Film Screening - Broadway Cinema - Nottingham

Living On One Dollar is an award-winning film that has been called "a must watch" by Nobel Laureate Muhammad Yunus and Director of The Hunger Games, Gary Ross. Living on One Dollar follows the journey of four friends as they set out to live on just $1 a day for two months in rural Guatemala. They battle hunger, parasites, and extreme financial stress as they attempt to survive life on the edge. An unimaginable reality for most people in the western world, the challenges they face are real and plague over 1.1 billion people around the world. While the friends quickly learn there are no easy answers, the generosity and strength of Rosa, a 20 year old woman, and Chino, a 12 year old boy, give them hope that there are effective ways to make a difference.The film screening will be hosted by the Education for the Children Foundation in partnership with Broadway Cinema in Nottingham. EFTC run the School of Hope in the extremely deprived area of Jocotenango, Guatemala. They provide education, nutrition, health and social support to over 671 children and young people. Tickets to the film screening are free but a suggested, optional donation of £5 to the Education for the Children Foundation would be greatly appreciated.
