It's a big world out there. It's not easy to wrap your mind around the diversity of human experience taking place around the world, all the time.

A new feature-length documentary film is trying to change that. One Day on Earth includes footage filmed by professional and amateur filmmakers in all 193 nations and territories recognized by the United Nations, all of it recorded on a single day: October 10, 2010. Distilled from more than 3,000 hours of video, it debuted in 160 countries on Earth Day, 2012.

It's makers conceptualized the documentary as a "video time capsule" of a single day, a way for people living continents apart to understand their links with each other—including the way crises from climate change to pollution connect us all.
