One to watch – Life in a Day

Written by 15 October 2011 No Comment

What happens when you send a request out to the world to chronicle, via video, a single day on Earth?

Oscar-winning film director Kevin Macdonald’s project Life in a Day was born out of a unique partnership between Ridley Scott and YouTube. The film is a user-generated, feature-length documentary shot all on a single day—July 24, 2010.
Enlisted to capture a moment of the day on camera, the global community responded by submitting more than 80,000 videos to YouTube from 192 countries. The videos contained over 4,500 hours of deeply personal, powerful moments shot by contributors from Australia to Zambia, and from the heart of bustling major cities to some of the most remote places on Earth.

Life in a Day brings together the most compelling footage from YouTube to create a 90-minute film crafted by Macdonald, executive producer Ridley Scott, producer Liza Marshall, and their teams. The film offers a unique experience that shows—with beauty, humor, and joyful honesty—what it’s like to be alive on Earth today.

Brought to theatres by National Geographic you should prepare, as I was, to be amazed; simply a beautiful portrayal of our world today! Find out where Life in a Day is playing in your area here.
