A user-generated film shot on July 24, 2010 that enlisted people around the world to capture their day on camera. Brought to you by National Geographic and You Tube, releasing in US theaters July 29.

Produced by Ridley Scott and directed by Kevin Macdonald, LIFE IN A DAY is a user-generated feature-length documentary, shot on a single day - July 24, 2010 - that enlisted the global community to capture a moment of their lives on camera.

The world responded by submitting more than 80,000 videos, representing over 4,500 hours of deeply personal, powerful films from contributors from Australia to Zambia, from the heart of bustling major cities to the furthest and most remote reaches of the earth.

LIFE IN A DAY brings together the most compelling YouTube footage into a 90-minute film, crafted by Macdonald, Executive Producer Ridley Scott, Producer Liza Marshall and their team, to offer a unique experience that shows, in beautiful, humourous and joyful honesty, what it's like to be alive on earth today.
