A Simpler Way



About the Film

"Not all solutions come with money... but critical thinking."

Four university students journey to a remote village in Uganda to discover a radically simple solution to an urgent global problem. 'A Simpler Way' explores the need for simple, affordable solutions to global development issues and the role of personal experience in meaningful, transformative education. Using only the power of the sun, the film proposes SODIS (Solar Water Disinfection) - a cheap and effective solution that has the potential to save a million lives.
