Filmed by You.

A documentary shot by film-makers all over the world that serves as a time capsule to show future generations what it was like to be alive on the twenty-fourth of July, 2010.

Enlisted to capture a moment of the day on camera, the global community responded by submitting more than 80,000 videos to YouTube. The videos contained over 4,500 hours of deeply personal, powerful moments shot by contributors from Australia to Zambia, and from the heart of bustling major cities to some of the most remote places on Earth. The film offers a unique experience that shows – with beauty, humor, and joyful honesty – what it’s like to be alive on Earth today.

The alien and the human being always can understand each other if there will be a good will.

The film has no dialogue in any language. All communication is made using music, gestures and gazes; the alien also tries to communicate by shapeshifting. Director Vladimir Tarasov explored this theme of universal communication in his other films; he considered animation “the Esperanto of all mankind”.

The idea of the Earth as an integrated self-regulated living organism.

Based on the themes in the book The Global Brain, this moving audio-visual presentation explores the “Gaia hypothesis.” It points to the fragile regulating system that exists between all living and non-living things with the aim of showing people that recognizing the interconnectedness of all things, helps us to become more conscious of our daily actions and ultimately discover a more peaceful way to live with ourselves, each other and the planet. Well ahead of the internet and information and communications technologies’ boom, Peter Russell observed “if Earth is a collective, self-regulating living organism, what then is the potential of humanity as seen through the eyes of the planet?”
