We last heard about YouTube's Life in a Day project -- wherein producer Ridley Scott and director Kevin MacDonald combed through 80,000 video submissions (totaling 4,500 hours) to piece together one day in the life of, well, humanity -- in August. Now comes word that the filmmakers have chosen 26 co-directors from the submissions, and will be premiering the film live at Sundance, complete with a concurrent live stream on YouTube. Here's a look at one segment of the film:
Life in a Day will premiere January 27 at 5 PM Pacific on the YouTube channel. Continuing the theme of global inclusion, the live stream will be subtitled in 25 languages; a theatrical release will reportedly follow later in the year.
