Did you know that the richest country in the world has one of the most alarming poverty rates in the world? This documentary brings to light the problem of those who are below the poverty line.
The Line: Poverty in America
According to the 2011 U.S. Census Bureau, some 46 million Americans live in poverty. That is the third-highest poverty rate among developed nations, ahead only of Turkey and Mexico.
This documentary directed by Emmy Award winning producer Linda Midgett, addresses this last American taboo.
The idea is to make visible the situation of those millions who are below the poverty line in the richest country in the world and shed light on the causes and possible solutions to this endemic problem.
