What’s Happening On the Other Side of the Earth?


What happened to you on 11.11.11? It’s only once per century that this unique date passes. The One Day on Earth documentary project, founded by Kyle Ruddick asks just that. The unique project worked with documentary filmmakers, students, and other inspired citizens to record the human experience over a 24-hour period. This is the second installment of the project, which started in 2010, which has been used to create a fully interactive archive with photo galleries, blog posts, and a video archive map.  The map allows for a visual, searchable experience to answer that compelling question: What’s happening on the other side of the world right now?

On October 10, 2010 (10.10.10) across the planet, documentary filmmakers, students, and inspired citizens recorded the human experience over a 24-hour period and contributed their voices to the largest participatory media event in history. This is the trailer of the first week of uploaded footage, capturing the beauty, the tragedy and the unique expressions of life from around the globe.
