Saving the World
1:00 minute

Nominated in the Best in the World Category of Die Ein Minuten (now TheOneMinutes) and televised on Dutch television Saving the World was captured in one shot in Norman Foster’s Canary Wharf Station during rush hour. Inspired by Dale Arden’s “But Flash! We’ve only got 14 hours to save the world” the hero attempts to do it in just one minute. Stumbling out of sight as a crowd gathers below the outcome is not revealed. Composer Keith Johnson’s reconfiguring of Chopin’s Waltz in D Flat Major, more popularly known as the Minute Waltz, adds a vital sense of urgency.
