“I can’t explain how much hope comes through… It’s a beautiful thing.”

Kyle Ruddick, Director, in the New York Times

Part of the power of documentary is its ability to crystallize the particularities of life. In gathering videos documenting life in every country on earth, all shot on a single day, One Day On Earth amplifies that power, highlighting the diversity of experience around the globe while also pointing to the things we all share. One Day On Earth was started in 2008 and brought its mission of a globally crowdsourced documentary film to the world for the first time in 2010. Since then, the group has been producing a film every year stitched together from contributions from around the globe. On its website, individual films are available in full for further exploration of the filmmakers’ perspectives. Geo-tagged video contributions allow visitors to explore the archive by exploring the world, discovering participant videos uploaded from every corner of the globe.
