  • Summary: One Day on Earth began in September 2008 as a new media project to create a unique video time capsule, global online community and feature-length film—all from participant footage captured during the 24-hour period of October 10, 2010 (10.10.10). The project is a shared public archive hosted by Vimeo, and its social network is powered by Ning. One Day on Earth also works closely with dozens of non-profits and NGOs to document important social issues, holding annual global collaborations. (One Day on Earth LLC) Expand

    The cumulative effect is somewhat overwhelming. How could it not be?

    Ultimately, a collage film is only as good as its constituent parts, and, with a few exceptions, the brief snippets from this particular day on earth are far too prosaic to be illuminating.

    One Day on Earth shows, there's a fine line between coherence and chaos.

    The rush of watching images made in such rare locales as Andorra and Sao Tome quickly wears thin as the montage whips through considerably meaty topics (water issues, climate change, immigration, religious faith) like an impatient Web surfer.

    The film is driven by a we-are-the-world connectedness, but remains a travelogue in search of a defining center. The overall impression is as fleeting as much of the imagery that flashes across the screen.

    Much like the recent, similarly themed "Life in a Day," the results are more admirable than enlightening or even entertaining.

    One Day On Earth touched my heart. It was sad, funny and heartwarming. This film shot on 10.10.10 is a documentary of the whole world in one day. Everyone in the whole wide world got cameras and started filming- and got creative. ODOE focuses on a lot of subjects like- Pollution, Festivals, Crime etc. and even the good things. Well, I loved this movie. Long but really good. It's a must watch. Collapse
