The Well: Water Voices from Ethiopia
Paulo Barbieri & Ricardo Russo, Ethiopia/Italy, [EST] 56 min.
This is the Horn of Africa, a region of the world that is periodically shocked by terrible droughts. Each year to prepare for the coming dry season, Borana herders will gather their livestock and walk for days to the dry Oromia Lowlands (South of Ethiopia) to retrieve water from their secular astonishing “singing” wells. With its strong photography and its epic narration, the film follows their lives during a whole dry season, showing a unique traditional water management system that regulates what water is available as the property and right of everyone, without any money being exchanged

Living on One Dollar
Zach Ingrasci (co-director), Sean Leonard (co-director), 56 min. 2013, Documentary/Drama Guatemala/USA, English/Spanish [EST]
Four American friends set out to live on just one dollar a day for two months in rural Guatemala. They battle hunger, parasites, and extreme stress to survive. 
This terrible experience is, however, the reality of life for 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 resilient hope that there are effective ways to make a difference.
