Fenton staff celebrated Earth Day at the UN-hosted premiere of One Day on Earth, the first film shot in every country in the world on the same day. Premieres of One Day on Earth took place in over 160 countries on Sunday, from Afghanistan to Botswana to Oman to Venezuela and everywhere in between. Browse through this stunning gallery to see videos and photos from hundreds of global screening events.
The 104-minute film was created from over 3,000 hours footage collected by thousands of amateur and professional filmmakers on October 10, 2010. It features moments rarely seen on-screen, such as the largest military parade in North Korea and a wedding ritual in Kosovo, and explores interconnected global challenges including extreme poverty, resource depletion and military conflict. Check out the trailer below.
First-time filmmakers Brandon Litman and Kyle Ruddick partnered with over 60 organizations, including the UN, the Ford Foundation, Human Rights Watch, 350.org and the World Wildlife Fund, to collect and distribute One Day on Earth footage. Litman, Ruddick and their partners emphasize that One Day on Earth is much more than a film—it is an online community, a time-capsule film archive and a platform for people across the world to connect, engage and take action through film.
Fenton handled the intense publicity leading up the film’s release, scoring coverage from CBS, CNN, Mashable, Entertainment Weekly, The Christian Science Monitor and more. Our goal was to bring attention not just to the global premiere, but also to the larger social movement and online community that Litman and Ruddick have created.
