I had the privilege of screening the film One Day on Earth at the United Nations General Assembly last night with my good friends at Record Setter. I was there to film while Team Record Setter officiated a new record for “Largest Global Film Premiere”. This film was screened at the same time in more than 160 countries around the world.
One Day on Earth was compiled from footage shoot on 10/10/10. With more than 3000 hours of footage, they created some great storylines touching on every facet of the human experience; birth and death, love and sorrow, the natural world around us.
It was fantastic. It’s one that everyone should see to really appreciate that we are not just citizens of countries, but we are all citizens of the world. There’s much more that unites us than divides us. Check out the film’s site to find out about the next film compiled from footage shot on 11/11/11. I look forward to it.
(I was blown away from actually sitting in the UN General Assembly. It’s a place that’s almost frozen in time, the 60s. Check out this panorama I captured just before the screening.)
