PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This 56 minute documentary on Netflix is the best thing I have seen this year for either a Spanish or a Social Studies class. 4 college students spend 56 days in a remote Guatemalan village on a dollar a day budget while they explore the effects of living in extreme poverty and some clever innovative solutions people have come up with to survive. This film is excellent for any Spanish class where you have been studying immigration and the reasons people leave their home countries to risk their lives traveling to the US, or for a social studies class where you are looking at underdeveloped countries and what it means to live in extreme poverty. My students loved this film bc it was created by four college students and uses their observations and connections as the narrative between the interviews with people in the village. (Interviews are all in Spanish with subtitles, narrative in English. ) Suitable for any level middle or high school class and available to view on Netflix, this film was such a gem you will want to own a copy. Movie guide contains 29 questions in chronological order with opportunities to stop the film and think/pair/share and for students to react with their own opinions.
