Life in a Day

Do you remember what you were doing on July 24, 2010? (I was returning a U-Haul after driving from Arizona to Pennsylvania.) The answer is definitely a yes for YouTube users that uploaded footage of their day for director Kevin Macdonald and his project.

Macdonald, director of The Last King of Scotland, took footage from users in more than 192 countries, and turned it into a 90-minute documentary called Life in a Day. The film was released to theaters last month, although I haven’t seen it anywhere nearby. But if you have two minutes to spare, I highly recommend watching the trailer. Even if you don’t get to see the film, which has already been met with high critical acclaim, the trailer is an inspirational piece in and of itself.
