One of the most ambitious and successful documentaries of the year, LIFE IN A DAY is a beautiful collage of people, places, emotions and lives taking place over the course of a single day. Devised and compiled by Academy-Award Winning director Kevin MacDonald (ONE DAY IN SEPTEMBER, TOUCHING THE VOID), LIFE IN A DAY asked people from all walks of life to film themselves over the course of 24 July 2010 (an arbitrary date, but as a Saturday, a day that the filmmakers believed would show people participating in a wider variety of activities) and then submit their videos to the project's YouTube page.
After wading through 4,500 hours of footage from every corner of the globe, the results are far more impressive, entertaining and poignant than I think anybody had imagined. The great news is that the entire film has now been put up on the LIFE IN A DAY YouTube channel for everybody to watch for free, and I have shared it below. I urge you all to watch it now!
