Every Three Seconds someone in the world dies from factors related to extreme poverty – 30,000 people a day and 10.5 million a year. The sheer magnitude can be overwhelming, causing people to ask the question, “What can one person do, to possibly make a difference?”
Every Three Seconds , the documentary from award-winning director Dan Karslake, profiles ordinary people who asked that question and whose work offered profound answers. Each identified an issue that seemed insurmountable — and disproved that with surprising solutions, perseverance and a belief in human decency. Through these shared experiences, audiences will discover the blinding potential in each one of us to do great things to change the world. We hope to inspire a movement and uncover a new wave of change agents and previously untapped resources.
