Why Poverty?

Poor Us: An Animated History of Poverty

For the whole of modern civilization, humans have attempted and failed to eradicate poverty. What can we learn from generations of failed efforts? Using a combination of animation, archival material, live action, anecdote, and humor, Poor Us looks at mankind’s periodic efforts to alleviate poverty with the hope that we will get a better sense of how to move forward.
