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.

Top Customer Reviews
Overall, a truly unique and inspiring film. Highly recommend.
It would be fair to say that "One Day On Earth" is a feature length documentary based on the footage archived from 10/10/10. But in the traditional sense, it is more of a collage style sensory assault. If you were a fan of films such as "Koyaanisqatsi," "Baraka," or the recent "Samsara" (Yes, I'm a fan of Ron Fricke who worked on the first and directed the other two), than you will quickly understand the aesthetic that the film aspires to. The film is structured by editing images together from every country on Earth to achieve an impressive sense of international connectedness. The experience, set to a soundtrack that includes original music from Joseph Minadeo (as well as Paul Simon and other world artists), is meant to provoke and inspire without the use of a conventional narrative or dialogue.
Indeed, "One Day On Earth" begins as an exciting travelogue, a glimpse at exotic lands and customs. But, perhaps, the film is a little too ambitious in the end.Read more ›
