Life in a Day

19 Jun

Life in a Daythis looks inspiring, amazing, magical.


Via National Geographic: What happens when you send a request out to the world to chronicle, via video, a single day on Earth? You get 80,000 submissions and 4,500 hours of footage from 192 countries, all shot on the same day. Producer Ridley Scott and Oscar-winning director Kevin Macdonald took this raw material and created Life in a Day, a groundbreaking, feature-length documentary that portrays this kaleidoscope of images we call life. Prepare to be amazed.



Life in a Day premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2011, and was simultaneously live streamed on YouTube. If you missed it (like me), or want to see it again on the big screen, worry not. National Geographic will be bringing Life in a Day to theaters around the US (and hopefully Canada!) on July 24th, 2011 – the first anniversary of the day the movie was shot.

    Wow – that looks really cool. Are you surprised that I’m actually interested in a documentary? We should go! But I have now realized I am in Ottawa. So that is not helpful.

    Too bad you are in Ottawa. I would have loved to check it out with you! I tried to see if it’s playing in Vancouver and haven’t found any useful information yet…
