Story


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. 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. National Geographic is bringing it to theaters starting in July. Prepare to be amazed!

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..this amazing compilation of videos all shot the same day around the globe is one for the ages..”
by Kirk Honeycutt [Hollywood Reporter]
“..the quality of the film surprisingly good, but one can't help thinking that a dozen different films could have been made with the material, each as intriguing as the other..”
by Derek Malcolm [This Is London]
“..a simple-but-brilliant conception, for sure, and, at its best, the amalgam of footage works like a rhythmic visual poem, with sections structured beautifully to musical accompaniment..”
by Andrew Pulver [The Guardian]
