Global Lives Project

Traveling Video Exhibit & Collaborative Video Library

The Global Lives Project is an international collaboration of filmmakers who have filmed 24-hours in the lives of 10 people around the world, loosely representing the demographic diversity of our planet.

We aim to collaboratively build a video library of human life experience that reshapes how we as both producers and viewers conceive of cultures, nations and people outside of our own com munities.

As Board Member and Chair of the Production Committee, I have co-managed our productions through implementation in the exhibits, and facilitate our direction in productions, translations, and exhibits as we move forward.  Hundreds of volunteers have made this project possible.

Our World Premiere exhibit was hosted at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, CA from February 26-June 20, 2010.  The show features 240 hours of video of Brazil, Malawi, Japan, China, Indonesia, India, Serbia, Lebanon, Kazakhstan and the US.  The exhibits are framed by the arc of the day, with no narrative other than that which is found in the composition of everyday life.  Approximately 20,000 people visited the exhibit during this time.  We have since screened in Poland, Serbia, France and the UK.
