One Day on Earth is a new feature-length documentary film – the first 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. The world is greatly interconnected, enormous, perilous and wonderful.
Four years in the making, One Day on Earth is a video time capsule of one day - 10 October 2010. More than 19,000 filmmakers, both professional and novice, contributed 3,000 hours of footage.
Founder/Director Kyle Ruddick and Co-founder/Executive Producer Brandon Litman, donated video cameras to more than 95 UN country offices, which resulted in unusually intimate access, including footage of remote villages and lesser seen world cultures. The UN has extended their logistical support of the project through 2015.
The screening will be followed by a question and answer session with Brandon Litman, Executive Producer and a Staten Island native. Representatives from the Greenbelt will also be available for questions.
