Josiah Schooling and the Drowning Child (Video)

Through a stop-motion video, our project aims to explain Peter Singer’s Drowning Child Argument where if one has a moral obligation to save a drowning child, one has an equal moral obligation to save a starving child. Furthermore, the video will illustrate one common objection to the drowning child argument – knowledge/distance, where the main character – Josiah Schooling, experiences an ethical dilemma of whether to donate towards helping starving children. Segment to be evaluated: 0:00 to 2:15
