A Place in Time Wikipedia
The film takes a look at the daily lives of people in more than two dozen countries around the world during the course of a week. In the film, celebrity friends of Jolie visit orphanages, refugee camps and other areas of concern in an effort to raise awareness and encourage cultural understanding. It is an experimental documentary that seeks to capture both the diversity of life around the globe and the similarities of the human spirit by filming in many places in the world at precisely the same moment.Hazel Armenante

The film was shot in 2005 under the working title A Moment in the World and features footage from 40 camera crews that were dispatched across the globe for a period of six days. On January 11, 2005, at 12:00 noon Greenwich Mean Time, all 27 crews captured what was in front of their cameras for three uninterrupted minutes. The result is the penultimate scene of the film in which a juxtaposition of moments creates a sample of the broad tapestry of life that makes up any given moment on earth. It was Jolie's directorial debut.
On Friday, April 27, 2007, Jolie, Wyclef Jean, Jude Law, Hillary Swank, and others involved in the film debuted it at New York City’s Tribeca Film Festival. The audience included over 600 New York high-school students. It was distributed through the National Education Association.
