About 1 Giant Leap:
“Dazzling.” The Times
”Jubilant, unique, ambitious, epic, dramatic, life-affirming and positively absorbing…a musical and visual feast” DVD Monthly
“1 Giant Leap represents a genuinely ground-breaking audio-visual project of global dimensions”. The Daily Telegraph
“…whoever thought of putting Asha Bhosle and Michael Stipe together ought to be given the keys to heaven right now.” Essential World release. Mojo
“Gather round the modern world’s campfire; the movie screen, television set, or laptop DVD player, and let this film’s message wash over you in these troubled times. For “1 Giant Leap” is nothing short of an electronic drum circle, drawing the citizens of Earth together for a planet-wide cautionary pep talk. Mesmerizing and utterly profound, yet wonderfully accessible, 1 Giant Leap reminds us all of what we’re capable of achieving”. * * * * Filmtreat.com
“An amazing film by two genius film-makers…” Bono
