Rich Hill

Living in Poverty

Purpose : To show the daily struggles of kids in poverty.


  • The documentary Rich Hill shows the struggles of everyday life of poverty by using the three young boys.

The Purpose of this film was to show the problems poverty causes. What challenges the boys face. And the things they have to give up to go on another day

How they achieved this

The film showed many struggles the boys faced, such as constantly moving to different places. Showing that the one of the families wouldn't be able to pay their bills. And even in some cases not having hot water to take showers/baths.


This filmed showed me that there is just more to it when it comes to living in poverty. The struggles people in poverty go through. The things they have to go through. It has shown me to appreciate what i have, and not take it for granted.
