Gund Sponsors Global Screening of ONE DAY ON EARTH

As part of an Earth Day celebration at Main Street Landing in Burlington, Vermont, the Gund Institute for Ecological Economics is sponsoring a screening of One Day on Earth. April 22nd is the worldwide premiere of this new documentary, edited from film shot in every country on earth on 10-10-10. More than 19,000 filmmakers, both professional and novice, contributed 3,000 hours of footage. The film links how crises confronting the world – from the water shortage to poverty – connects us all.

The Main Street Landing event will screen films from 12 to 9 pm in celebration of the planet, including episodes from the award-winning BBC documentary “Planet Earth” and the film “Dirt! The Movie”. A “Take Action for the Planet! Jamboree” will take place in the Lake Lobby throughout the day with kiosks from Vermont-based environmental organizations.
