Be Part of Our New Global Film

The world has changed. We are sending you all love and strength, and want to make something with you about what is happening.

Ten years ago we made our first global collaborative film — a 4-min film called A Declaration of Interdependence. It feels so relevant now. Maybe the “connected” sign language symbol shown below could be the new greeting to remind us all, while we are “social distancing,” that we are connected and interdependent.


It’s time to make a new global cloud film.

We’d love for you to be part of it!

You can participate by yourself, or in socially distant safe groups (get creative with Zoom and other tech!). Be sure to have good lighting and no background noise, and if you video on your phone, hold it horizontally.

We are looking for people of all ages. If you are a parent or educator, get your kids/students involved! It’s a great digital classroom project. We also encourage all languages!

Read the questions below and either turn your video on right now and say what comes to mind immediately, or, spend a day or two thinking about it. All answers should be 10 seconds or less, direct to camera.

    • What are you most scared about right now? 
    • What’s the best thing that can come from this?
    • What’s your favorite act of kindness or humanity you have seen?

Please also keep the camera rolling, and make the “connected” hand symbol at the end.

Submit Video

We can’t wait to see what you send!
