Islanders’ “Living on One Dollar” documentary is free on Hulu

Four young filmmakers traveled to Guatemala in 2010 to experience life on less than $1 a day. The harrowing experiment resulted in “Living on One Dollar,” a documentary that premiered last fall.

Since then, the creators of Living on One – three of whom grew up on Bainbridge Island — have been busy turning the film into a social movement. They’ve screened the documentary at universities and festivals around the country in recent months. They’ve also organized events to raise awareness of global poverty and promote microfinance.

The film can be viewed free on Hulu through May 3.
