This video clip from, "Living on One Dollar," explains some ways we can misunderstand poverty when we don't hear people's stories.
The documentary "Living on One Dollar" follows four college students on their summer adventure to try living on one dollar a day in Guatemala. Because those living in extreme poverty often never know when they'll get paid, they drew a number from a hat each day that would be their income for that day. While they were trying to replicate the experience for themselves, they also interviewed Guatemalans in the village where they were staying.
In this clip from "Living on One Dollar," Zach Ingrasci shares about his experience in realizing that poverty is complex and affects more than just survival through those interviews.
