“Life in a Day” by Ridley Scott and Michael Macdonald

Last July 24, 2010, thousands of people, from all of the world, uploaded over 4500-hours of footage to YouTube in order to create this 90-minute documentary about a single day on earth.  Produced by Ridley Scott and Directed by Michael Macdonald the video offers insight from a global perspective of life and emotions living for 24 hours on earth.  It will be released on July 24, 2011.

  1. I saw this a couple of days ago… It was one of the most emotional film I’ve seen in a long time.
    You can argue that some of it might be slightly heavy-handed (a shot of a cow being killed on camera is then, non very subtlety, cut together with a man eating from a bowl of spaghetti), but some of the choices are absolutely inspired
    It’s the amalgamation of all these little snippets of life that makes the film an incredible watch and in the end it ends up actually telling a story as the ordinary becomes extraordinary.
