On October 10, 2010 (10.10.10), 19,000 filmmakers around globe shot the daily life unfolding around them. Their subjects ranged from people, to plants to bugs to the heavens. Over 3,000 hours of collective footage was edited down into one hour and 45 minutes, and the result is a stunning cinematic snapshot of our world today: the rhythms of nature and life (in that 24-hour period 363,000 babies were born), quotidian human habits, and the rites of passage in different civilizations.
