life in a day.

last night dev and i were invited to an advance screening of the YouTube/Ridley Scott film: Life in a Day. i’ve been to a bunch of movies lately but nothing has really wowed me. and yes, i’ve seen Tree of Life, and honestly? besides the exquisite photography i thought the film was really self-indulgent and monotonous. i know that’s blasphemy to say out loud amongst hipster circuits, but there you go.

life in a day was a project that YouTube launched where on july 24th, 2010 people all over the world submitted a video of their day. something like 80,000 hours of footage from 190+ countries was received, cataloged and edited together into this incredible menagerie of what the world ‘looked’ like and experienced during those 24 hours. it’s breathtaking, poignant, humorous, authentic and SUCH a powerful example of how people are beautiful in their diversity and yet we are still so obviously one.human.family.

if you get the chance to see it on the big screen (it opens in the US in two weeks) i highly recommend it.

    This loooks like an amazing burst of energy and love from all over the planet. A sample of how much alike we all are and how we show it so differently.

    I hear you on Tree of Life!! There were a couple of times that I looked around me to see if other people were seriously into what was happening. I mean REALLY? I wanted to giggle so many times. There were just so many cliches! I made the “mistake” of voicing my oppinon about it once outside and a friend of a friend became very annoyed with me. I guess I’m just not that much of an art house film buff.

    a perfect example of what amazing things can be created through social media connecting people around the world. I am going to have to see that (and may have to post this preview on my blog as well).
