Together with producers Tony and Ridley Scott, director Kevin Macdonald (TOUCHING THE VOID, THE LAST KING OF SCOTLAND) made LIFE IN A DAY, an experimental documentary made from user generated content uploaded to YouTube. The videos all focus on the daily lives of people in the same 24 hours and include “a Korean man who has been cycling the world for nine years, a young mother battling cancer, and a Russian free-runner making Moscow his playground.” A portrait of real life in the 21st century in the truest sense, from compilation to completion.

The film premiered simultaneously on YouTube and at this year's Sundance Film Festival, with a release on July 24th (one year to the day the film takes place). You can see its very moving trailer after the break.
