Life in a Day


    As you prepare your daily ritual each day, the world spins with billions of other souls doing the same. Would it not be great to see what people on the other side of the globe are doing? Life in a Day is a cinematic experiment of human life in a day. People die each day and are born. Some laugh. Some cry. Kevin Macdonald and Ridley Scott are trying to capture the human experience in one movie where you are the star.
