As we gear up for Memorial Day weekend, our thoughts turn to barbecues, trips to the beach, and most importantly, how we’ll beat that oppressive New York heat this summer. Sometimes as New Yorkers, it is hard to take a moment from our hectic lives and consider our citizenship in a larger global community. Well next weekend, we challenge you to consider this role by coming out to a screening of a new documentary, One Day On Earth.
The idea for One Day On Earth was conceived in September 2008 as a global documentary starring the residents, both human and animal, of planet earth. On October 10th, 2010, filmmakers all over the world captured footage of their diverse communities over a 24-hour period. The finished product is the documentary, One Day On Earth, a harmonious compendium of life all over the world.
Producers of the documentary took this ambitious project one step further by partnering with charities to raise money for local and international causes. We are thrilled to have been chosen as one of those charities. Proceeds from the screenings of One Day On Earth at 8:40 on Friday, 6/1 and 6:10 on Sunday, 6/3 will go directly to MFTA. This means for just $11 you can see this exciting new film and support Materials for the Arts.
