An amazing intimate peek into life on Earth! (video-documentary)
A simple concept:
What happens when you send a request out to the world to chronicle, via video, a single day on Earth?
People from around the world were invited to film themselves on the same day, documenting their lives as well as answering 3 questions: Who do you love? What’s in your pocket? What do you fear?
You get 80,000 submissions, 4.500 hours of footage from 192 countries, 90 minutes documentary film.
Producer Ridley Scott and Oscar-winning director Kevin Macdonald took this raw material — all shot on July 24, 2010 — and created Life in a Day, a groundbreaking, feature-length documentary that portrays this kaleidoscope of images we call life.
We have often let our mind wonder and think about what others are doing at the exact same moment as we are, across the globe. Life in a Day does exactly that. It shows us how we’re not alone on this planet, there are others that are perhaps dealing with the same fears or celebrating the same successes, we are all tied together as the human race.
National Geographic is bringing it to theaters starting July 24, 2011. Prepare to be amazed by an intimate peek into life on Earth!
