Satellite Films releases two trailers for its independent documentary series, A Moment on Earth.

The project explores the diversity of activity and experiences taking place on our planet at any given moment.

Satellite Films releases two movie trailers for its independent documentary series A Moment on Earth. To view the trailers, go to:

The trailer for the first part in the series, A Moment on Earth, combines pieces of dialogue from a number of the filmmaker's commentaries in order to tell the story behind the capturing of the moment. The first filmmaker shown is Sunday Ogundele of Nigeria.

The trailer for the second part in the series, A Moment on Earth: 12 Hours Later, features a scene from a wrestling arena in Mexico City, Mexico contrasted with a Buddhist sanctuary in Krabi, Thailand.

"In seeing so many real-life scenes all captured at the same moment in time, this project forces viewers to think on a global level – not just in the usual terms of jobs, trade and globalization – but in terms of humanity," says Jereme Axelrod, the project's director. "It allows us to empathize with the differences between us at any given moment, as well as the many things we inevitably hold in common."


On August 5th, 2004 at 12:00pm GMT, 60 filmmakers in over forty countries across all seven continents captured a single Moment on Earth. Coordinated by Satellite Films, each camera operator focused on the life of a unique individual. Planned according to respective time zones so that everyone would be shooting at the same instant, the camera operators were instructed to film a "hero" of their choosing – capturing their life as they would live it on any day. 12 hours after the first moment, they shot again, capturing the second part in the on-going series.
