About One Day on Earth

One Day on Earth - Release Trailer from One Day on Earth on Vimeo.

One Day on Earth is the first film made in every country of the world on the same day and the largest collaboration of media creation in the world’s history. We see both the challenges and hopes of humanity from a diverse group of volunteer filmmakers assembled by a participatory media experiment. The film shows a world that is greatly interconnected, enormous, perilous, and wonderful.

Director's Statement

My hope with One Day on Earth has always been to inspire people across the world to create and share whatever they choose. I always thought of this as the world’s new media time capsule. In making this film we were charged with the awesome responsibility to combine many different stories to tell the world’s story, an effort that took an incredible amount of listening and discovery in the creative process.

What was the world trying to tell us? We took the full exhaustive review of all 3000 hours of footage very seriously. Through the organization of footage we found certain themes develop. We roughly used the cycle of life to organize these themes. As the process went on, we added statistics to introduce each theme and reinforce the enormity of the current state of life on our planet. After watching this movie, I hope the audience walks away feeling a deeper understanding of interconnectivity of the world we live in and that we all have an amazing opportunity every day we are alive. Being at the center of so much inspired creation has helped me feel the incredible gratitude I have for every day on earth. The world is a challenged place, but I do believe humanity has the opportunity to sustain and I hope this project and film inform us of the shared path we are traveling.

About the Shoah Foundation Institute Student Association (SFISA)

The Shoah Foundation Institute Student Association (SFISA) is a student-led creative initiative whose mission is to raise awareness of prejudice and bigotry. We work closely in conjunction with the themes and missions of the USC Shoah Foundation - founded by Steven Spielberg in 1994 -  the on-campus archive that houses more than 52,000 Holocaust survivors' testimonies. SFISA strives to endorse acceptance of a diverse range of cultures by encouraging students to interact with the archive and by creating events that foster the discussion of tolerance of ethno-cultural differences and the global ethical responsibility of genocide prevention.
