What is it like to live below the poverty line in your community?

Our collaborative multimedia project connects emerging filmmakers around the world under a common goal to share unique accounts of individuals living with limited resources.

We will collect these short, five to seven minute videos—produced on a local, grassroots level—and publish them here, for the world to see. The mosaic of portraits will help us learn about transversal issues that affect poor communities as we begin an online dialogue where we can define areas of need and be inspired to action.

We are invite you to join the conversation and participate in our webdocumentary!
