EVERY THREE SECONDS

every three seconds

According to UNICEF, every three seconds, someone dies of extreme poverty—usually the victim is a child, and typically the cause is a preventable disease. Daniel Karslake tells the unforgettable stories of five regular folks—a boy, a college student, a thirty-something, and two seniors—whose lives went from ordinary to extraordinary based on one simple decision—to engage. Each chose action over apathy, and in the process, each one has had a significant and lasting impact on two of the most challenging, yet solvable, issues of our time: hunger and extreme poverty. EVERY THREE SECONDS is about doing well by doing good – about changing the world and changing one’s own life in the process. (99 mins.)

Co-presented with Women for Women International.

The film will be followed by a brief Q&A facilitated by activist and author Lisa Shannon.

 

EVERY THREE SECONDS screens Tuesday, June 9 at 7pm in our Whitsell Auditorium (located in the Portland Art Museum).

Tickets are available online or at the door.
