1 GIANT LEAP (Cert. 18)is a collaborative FILM project for the 21st Century, fusing music, words, sounds, rhythms and images from around the globe to celebrate the creative diversity of musicians, storytellers, authors, filmmakers, artists and thinkers from many different cultures. 1 Giant Leap is a title, a philosophy, a leap of faith that sprung from the minds of creative visionaries Jamie Catto and Duncan Bridgeman, and was supported by music industry legend Chris Blackwell. It is a melding of 21st Century technology and age-old beliefs; of careful planning and spontaneity; of East and West; rich and poor; the embodiment of the unity in human diversity.
1 Giant Leap features contributions from some of the most creative minds of our generation: Dennis Hopper, Kurt Vonnegut, Michael Stipe, Robbie Williams, Tom Robbins, Speech (from Arrested Development), Brian Eno, Baaba Maal, Anita Roddick, Ram Dass, Michael Franti, Gabrielle Roth, Asha Bhosle, and many others.
The primary theme of the project is “unity in diversity” – the assertion that regardless of one’s circumstance and experience, our similarities vastly outweigh our differences. 1 Giant Leap explores simple but universal concepts that touch all of us, no matter where we come from or where we are going. The film is made up of 11 chapters each examining a fundamental concept like sex, death, God, time or unity with a powerful message of hope.
Adding to both the difficulty and joy of 1 Giant Leap were the logistics of amassing music, words and images from over 20 countries; from towns and villages with no running water to the most modern and technologically-forward cities. Catto and Bridgeman journeyed around the world for over six months, with mobile studio and crew in tow, compiling unique digital music and footage from evocative locales like Senegal, Ghana, South Africa, Uganda, Kenya, Bombay, Bangalore, New Delhi, Varanasi, Calcutta, Darjeeling, Sikkim, Bangkok, South East Asia, Australia, New Zealand, San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York. The result is a new collaborative genre of music and image, a visual time capsule of the planet Earth at the turn of the 21st Century.
