Life in a Day, - the YouTube film

On July 24, 2010, thousands of people around the world uploaded videos of their lives to YouTube to take part in Life in a Day, a historic cinematic experiment to create a documentary film about a single day on earth.

Since then, Oscar-winning director Kevin Macdonald and a team of editors have whittled down over 80,000 clips (and more than 4500 hours of footage) into a 90-minute film that gives an honest and inspiring glimpse of our world.

“Life in a Day” will be officially released later this year, but you have a very special opportunity to see the world premiere live from the 2011 Sundance Film Festival on Thursday, January 27. The premiere will be followed by a live Q&A with Kevin Macdonald and key contributors to the film.
