Episode 5: We Need a Job

a report in English

What barriers do the poor face in finding work and how do they make a living?

Take action and find more resources on the Change Series website: http://www.livingonone.org/change-series.html#episode-5-we-need-a-job

Looking for job opportunities in Peña Blanca, we find that few people in the village actually have formal jobs. We decide to try to plant a small crop of radishes and quickly get a glimpse of how hard life is as a day laborer or a farmer. If there aren't enough formal jobs for most of the people living in Peña Blanca, is leaving your family and moving to a big city the only solution?

Episode 3: Hunger and Tortillas

a report in English

What kind of food can you afford on $1 a day and what does it really mean to be malnourished?

Take action and find more resources on the Change Series website: http://www.livingonone.org/changeseries

Cooking without a microwave or stove is harder than we thought! After eating just one bowl of rice and beans every day, we aren't feeling so good and Zach even passes out on the floor. Our neighbor, Rosa Solares, teaches us about how she uses lard and makes tortillas out of corn. Eating more calories every day, we still question whether this diet is giving our neighbors the nutrition they need to be healthy. Is this why Guatemala has one of the highest rates of malnutrition in the world?

Episode 7: (Not) Going to School

a report in English

What prevents kids from going to school and how can education respect traditional culture while also teaching modern skills?

Take action and find more resources on the Change Series website: http://bit.ly/NotGoingtoSchool

Playing soccer with the village kids every day, we realize that Regina's family can't even afford to send her to the public school. Why is there still a huge education gap between the rich and the poor in Guatemala if the government provides free public school? This gets us thinking about how an education gap prevents kids from indigenous families from learning Spanish. What effect does this language barrier have on someone's ability to get a formal job, travel to a big city or even visit a hospital?

Episode 2: Water From A Pipe?

a report in English

How big of an effect could not having clean water nearby have on your life?

After finding that the closest source of water is a plastic pipe coming out of the side of a hill, we aren't sure if its safe to drink. Two weeks later, Chris is lying sick and immobile on the dirt floor and we're not sure if we be able to afford the cost of a doctor or medicine. Is not having clean water really that big of a problem for our neighbors here? What about around the world?

Episode 6: Extreme Budgeting

a report in English

How is it possible to budget just $1 a day for immediate costs like food and shelter and still save for long term items like your kids' education and emergencies?

One day, we head to the bank in town to see if we could get a loan or open a savings account with only our $1 a day income and find that it's nearly impossible! Back in the village, we talk to our friends Anthony and Rosa about how they save and borrow money without using a traditional bank. Innovative tools, like microfinance loans and savings clubs, are helping them budget their money but what kind of extra risks do these tools force Anthony and Rosa to take on?

Episode 1: The First Step (Living on One)

a report in English

What is it really like to live on just $1 a day?

Today, we are setting out on the most intense experience of our lives- to live in extreme poverty, on just $1 a day for 56 days. We're traveling from the U.S. to the small village of Peña Blanca in rural Guatemala. There are so many things we don't know about the next two months. What will we eat every day, how will we budget such a small amount of money, what happens if we have an emergency?

Episode 4: Disaster Strikes

a report in English

What options do the poor have to get back on their feet after a natural disaster?

Take action and find more resources on the Change Series website: http://www.livingonone.org/changeseries

We realize that we have no idea how to farm and ask our neighbor Pedro for advice. Working in the fields every day makes us think about what life as a subsistence farmer would be like. Pedro tells us about a tropical storm that swept through Guatemala and how he saw 60 percent of his onion fields destroyed in a massive landslide. How would a family who is already living on the edge ever recover from a natural disaster like this?

Houston, this is...
Mission Specialist Ryan Stone, do you copy?
This is Mission Specialist Ryan Stone from SDS-157.
All other astronauts on the mission are dead. Houston, do you copy?
I'm stranded in a Soyuz spacecraft
without any fuel or oxygen left.
I'm feeling dizzy.
SOS, do you understand?
Mayday, Mayday.
Mayday. Do you copy?
Aningaaq... is that your name?
Aningaaq is your name, is that your name?
Oh, no, no, no. My name is not "Mayday".
I'm Stone, Dr Ryan Stone and I need help.
Dogs...
Are those dogs?
Aningaaq, make you dogs bark again for me. Would you, please?
Dogs, you know, woof, woof.
I'm dying, Aningaaq.
I know, we're all going to die. Everybody knows that.
But I'm going to die today.
But the thing is that I'm still scared.
I'm really scared.
Nobody will mourn for me. No one will pray for my soul.
Will you mourn for me?
Will you say a pray for me?
Or is it too late?
I mean, I'd say one for myself, but I've never prayed in my life...
There is a baby with you, huh?
Is that a lullaby you're singing?
It's so sweet.
That's nice, Aningaaq. Keep singing just like that.
Sing me to sleep and I'll sleep.
Keep singing...

Voici Aningaaq, un court métrage dans l'univers du film de Gravity sous-titrée en anglais et en français.

Vous m'entendez ?
Houston, ici le spécialiste de mission Ryan Stone, vous me recevez ?
Bonjour. Ici Aningaaq.
En direct du fjord Sikvivitsoq. Vous me recevez ?
Ici le spécialiste de mission Ryan Stone du SDS-157.
Les autres astronautes sont morts. Houston, vous me recevez ?
Je vois reçois 5/5 !
Je suis enfermée dans une navette Soyuz
sans carburant ni oxygène.
- J'ai des vertiges. - Non, je suis pas à côté de Qaarsut.
On s'est enfoncés dans les terres.
SOS, vous comprenez ?
Mayday, Mayday.
Mayday. Vous me recevez ?
Salut, Mayday ! Moi, c'est Aningaaq !
Aningaaq... c'est votre nom ?
Aningaaq est votre nom, c'est bien ça ?
Oui, Aningaaq !
Mayday, je suis enchanté.
Je ne m'appelle pas "Mayday".
Moi c'est Stone et j'ai besoin d'aide.
Vous entendez ? C'est ma chienne, Naanak.
Elle est malade et souffre beaucoup.
Je n'ai plus qu'à mettre fin à ses souffrances.
Je sais que c'est normal.
Elle est très vieille.
Mais je n'arrive pas à la laisser partir,
à lui dire adieu.
Je l'aime tellement.
Des chiens...
Ce sont des chiens ?
Aningaaq, faites-les aboyer encore. Vous voulez bien ?
Des chiens, vous savez ? Wouf, wouf !
Les chiens ? Ils ne font pas ce bruit-là.
Ils font plutôt...
Je meurs, Aningaaq.
Je sais, on va tous mourir un jour.
Mais je vais mourir aujourd'hui.
J'ai quand même peur.
Je suis terrifiée.
Personne ne me pleurera. Personne ne priera pour mon âme.
Vous me pleurerez ?
Vous direz une prière ?
Ou est-ce trop tard ?
Je le ferais bien moi-même, mais je n'ai jamais prié...
Il y a un bébé ?
Vous chantez une berceuse ?
C'est adorable.
C'est parfait, Aningaaq. Continuez à chanter.
Bercez-moi et je vais m'endormir.
Continuez...
Mayday, vous êtes là ?
