3,000 Hours of Footage—Every Country in the World—One Day of Filming
ONE DAY ON EARTH is the first film made in every country of the world on the same day. We see both the challenges and hopes of humanity from a diverse group of volunteer filmmakers assembled by a participatory media experiment. Their footage shows a world that is interconnected, enormous, perilous and wonderful.
The film charts the cycle of life over the 24-hour period of October 10, 2010. From every country of the world, we follow characters and events that evolve throughout the day, interspersed with expansive topical global montages that explore the progression of life from birth to death to birth again.
Compiled from over 3,000 hours of footage, ONE DAY ON EARTH offers us an epic glimpse of humanity from more perspectives than ever seen before.
