About the Project

Fifty People One Question is an ongoing social experiment and film series exploring human connections through people and place. The project began in New Orleans in 2008 and has since traveled across the globe, touching millions of viewers. Along the way, the films have captured a small slice of humanity; to discover dreams, losses, reflections, stories and secrets, some shared and some completely unrepeatable.

Remarkable individuals have shared countless responses to the films’ questions, both through the lens and in written form. This website has captured written responses from over 1,000 cities worldwide. Everyone is invited to see, hear, and explore our deepest human connections. And please, share your response to these simple, timeless questions.
