One Day on Earth's final chapter has been filmed worldwide by 34,000 volunteers. What began two years ago as an attempt to document on video one day's events all over the world has evolved into a network of filmmakers able to provide a glimpse into experiences of people living in war zones, closed societies and inaccessible places. Members of the One Day on Earth project filmed scenes around the world on December 12, 2012. What sets One Day on Earth apart from similar documentaries is the social network of filmmakers that the project helped establish in places like Libya and North Korea.
Lincoln, the tale of US President Abraham Lincoln's battle to end slavery, ruled at the Golden Globe nominations, while a very different movie take on slavery—Django Unchained—got a big boost in Hollywood's awards season. Steven Spielberg's portrayal of one of America's most revered presidents won a leading seven nominations. But Lincoln faces stiff competition from Ben Affleck's Iran hostage drama Argo and Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained. The best drama nominees were rounded out by Zero Dark Thirty, about the hunt for bin Laden, and the shipwreck tale, Life of Pi.
Mick Jagger love letters fetched $300,000 at a Sotheby's auction. The collection of love letters was written by Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger to American singer Marsha Hunt, and is believed to be the inspiration for the band's hit single Brown Sugar. Jagger wrote the 10 letters, dating from the summer of 1969, to Hunt while filming the Tony Richardson movie Ned Kelly in Australia. They showed a sensitive side of the then-young singer, who wrote about the poetry of Emily Dickinson, meeting author Christopher Isherwood and an unrealised multimedia project. Jagger's relationship with Hunt, who is African-American, was kept under wraps until 1972.
