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

“..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]
“..an impressive achievement on several levels that's by turns moving, funny and awe-inspiring, though it's also a little too manipulative and over-produced in places..”
by Matthew Turner [ViewLondon]
“..this amazing compilation of videos all shot the same day around the globe is one for the ages..”
by Kirk Honeycutt [Hollywood Reporter]
