Conscious Cinema - South Melbourne

Our South Melbourne studio is holding it's second Conscious Cinema evening on November 17th at 7.30pm

About the Documentary:-

Living on One Dollar is a film and journey that follows Yoke Yoga Community member, Rosie Waltons own experience living on $1 a day for two months in rural Guatemala. Throughout her trip, she battles intense hunger, parasites and the realisation that there are no easy answers. They find hope in the inspiring lives of Rosa, a 20-year-old woman, and Chino, a 12-year-old boy.

While in Guatemala, they released short YouTube videos about the experience to help friends at home learn alongside them in real time. The videos quickly received over 700,000 views, inspiring them to complete a feature-length film Living on One Dollar, to encourage others to help end extreme poverty.

To Rosie's amazement, the film has since won Best Documentary at the Sonoma International Film Festival and received endorsements from Nobel Laureate Muhammad Yunus, USAID Administrator Rajiv Shah, and the Director of the Hunger Games, Gary Ross.

All donations from this evening will go towards The Kindling Foundation - an orphanage in South Africa housing over 200 children founded in 2010 by a small Melbourne community.
