Life in a Day

Arriving home from picking up a pizza I noticed that I’d just received a message from Jeff informing me of a live premier stream of Life in a Day (Wikipedia, Google, Google Blog). I’m both extremely thankful that Jeff sent this glad that I began watching it, because it was absolutely captivating.

This film was comprised completely of crowdsourced footage all filmed on July 24th 2010 assembled into a stunning portrait of life across the world. I couldn’t help but be reminded of Godfrey Reggio films such as Koyaanisqatsi and Naqoyqatsi, but for some reason this felt significantly more engaging. Apparently this is going to be released by National Geographic and I must strongly recommend watching this. It is truly wonderful.
