Fort Worth cinephiles, get ready to take a trip around the world without leaving your seat because Movies That Matter is bringing the globe-trotting film "One Day on Earth" to The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. In what promises to be an epic cinematic journey, the film will be showcased on December 14th at 7 p.m., and it won't cost you a dime per the City of Fort Worth.

This isn’t just any film night—One Day on Earth is the first film ever to be shot in every country of the world on the same day. The vision portrays the challenges and hopes of humanity through the lenses of a diverse group of volunteer filmmakers. Film lovers will be treated to something that's both enormously entertaining and a sharply composed mosaic of the human experience.

The screening is part of the Movies That Matter series, the brainchild of the City of Fort Worth’s Human Relations Commission. Since its inception in 2010, the program has been dedicated to raising awareness of human rights issues that touch both the local community and the broader world around us. Folks who want to snag a spot at this free event should hustle to make their reservations online. And for those looking to get a sneak peek, they can view a trailer that is sure to whet their appetite for this unique film experience according to the City of Fort Worth.

Managed by the Diversity & Inclusion Department, Movies That Matter has consistently engaged Fort Worth residents with film screenings followed by moderated discussions that dive into human rights-related subjects.
