“Life in a Day” Now Available to Watch on YouTube

Author:

After receiving 4,500 hours of video from 192 countries, YouTube’s Life in a Day project is now available to watch free of charge on YouTube.

On July 24, 2010 (do you remember what you were doing that day?), thousands of people recorded video snippets of their lives to take part in YouTube’s Life in a Day project.

After being shown at Sundance, Berlin, SXSW and Sydney film festivals, “Life in a Day is finally coming home to YouTube—in its entirety, for free” says YouTube.

The film is about 90 minutes long and available with subtitles in 25 languages. It’s received great praise from publications such as The Times of London and The Washington Post who called it “a profound achievement”.

A few things you’ll see include a Korean man traveling the world on his bicycle, a shoe shine boy in Peru, a family dealing with cancer in Chicago and a Japanese man who is a single parent taking care of his son.

I love what the creators say is the purpose and message of this video – CONNECTION. It doesn’t matter where we live, what language we speak or how much we have in our bank account, we all need and want to connect with others. It also goes to show that we are all dealing with the same problems and the same ordeals of life. The same things make us happy. The same things make us sad. This big world we live in is actually quite small when you really stop to think about it.

If you have 90 minutes to spare, or heck – make the time to watch this movie. It’s worth it.
