Documentaries on (Almost) Eight Billion Lives

by Andrew Price

March 19, 2010
And here's another nice film project. Eight Billion Lives is an online platform for documentary films that focus on the world's non-famous population. They're collecting short, day-in-the-life style documentaries that represent the true range of humanity, from a Tanzanian student, to an 82-year-old Japanese man, to a Buddhist nun in Vermont.They only have 17 films up at the moment (and with six billion lives out there, the filmmakers have their work cut out for them) but they're all phenomenal. Not only are they compelling documentaries in their own right, they're a nice reminder that the human experience is a lot broader than our own slivers of experience.
