“My ultimate goal in film-making is to make a film which includes a smiling face snap of every single human being in the world”
Yoko Ono 1967.
And here you have it: Smilesfilm 2012.

Yoko Ono in 2012. We wouldn’t crop the cleavage….
“In August 1968, Yoko Ono directed two films, shot in the same afternoon in the garden of John Lennon’s house ‘Kenwood’ in Weybridge. The first film was called Number 5, but it has also been known as SMILE. It premiered at the Chicago Film Festival in 1968.”

Nowadays #smilesfilm
 is a worldwide online participatory artwork by Yoko Ono that reflects her pioneering vision of the power of mass participation.  Originally conceived in 1967 as a way of connecting people across the world, this 21st century project invites people to upload images of their smiles to Instagram & Twitter, accompanied by the hashtag #smilesfilm.
Using the hashtag, all the smiles are collated by the #smilesfilm website & app, and are then viewable globally and locally on a world map and together as a film.
Come on, dear friends, for the sake of our Sunday activities, let’s all smile!
You can download the smilesfilm app for your Iphone here.
