A Moment on Earth

A Moment on Earth is a series of short films created to try and put some perspective on what any moment on Earth is like.  On August 5, 2004 at 12:00pm GMT 60 filmmakers around the world recorded one minute of video showing what was happening where they were.  The results give a small glimpse into how much is going on at any moment and emphasize the difference in people's situations around the globe.  The website has an interesting Mosaic of stills from the different films that give a good summary of their subjects.
