The United Nations, in collaboration with the “One Day on Earth” online community, is preparing for what will be the first ever global screening of a film that includes footage that was shot in every country on the planet on a single day. The movie will be screened in every country of the world on the same day in late February 2012.
Working closely with the United Nations global network of country offices, the producers plan to screen the film in both theatres and venues of cultural and historic significance.
One Day on Earth produced the film in partnership with the United Nations, more than 60 non-profit organizations and a growing online community of over 19,000 filmmakers. On 10 October 2010 (10/10/10), the One Day on Earth community, including over 95 United Nations country offices, filmed in every country of the world, capturing both the joys and the struggles of everyday life.
“While the film identifies the common threads that connect us all, it also celebrates the diversity that is a part of our unique individual nature,” says Kyle Ruddick, Founder and Director of One Day on Earth. “The film contains a message of hope, but also a strong call to action for positive change on issues that face both the global and local communities.”
“Our partnership with One Day on Earth has grown from an experimental film project to a collaborative communications movement. This type of large scale event was a natural evolution for this partnership.” Kiyo Akasaka, United Nations Under-Secretary-General for Communications and Public Information.
“It is an honour to be the first film screened at this magnitude,” said Brandon Litman, Co-founder and Executive Producer of One Day on Earth. “As a grassroots project pitched to the United Nations a year and a half ago, this truly shows how an idea can grow into a global experience.”
