RFE/RL, FAMU Partner For 'One Day On Earth' Premiere

A day in the life of the third rock from the sun.
Planning to be in Prague this Sunday (April 22)? Want to take part in a truly global event? If so, join us at 6 pm, as RFE/RL and FAMU host the Prague premiere of “One Day on Earth," a new documentary that includes video footage from every nation on the planet from a single day: October 10, 2010.

Sunday’s screening at FAMU will be one of over 200 taking place in more than 100 countries across the globe on Earth Day. Producers Kyle Ruddick and Brandon Litman call their project “the first truly worldwide document” and it’s hard to argue with them: “One Day on Earth” brought together some 3,000 hours of video from amateur participants the world over. Their non-profit project has received endorsements and support from dozens of leading international organizations, including the United Nations Development Program, the Red Cross, and the World Wildlife Fund.

The documentary includes footage produced by RFE/RL's Tajik Service of the cotton harvest in Tajikistan. It is common for women and children to work long, hard hours in Tajikistan's cotton fields, as jobs are scarce and much of the male labor population goes to Russia in search of work. Tajik Service Director Sojida Djakhfarova will say a few words about the film at the screening.

We look forward to seeing you there!
