Life in a Day – Kevin MacDonald

One film I’m very excited about seeing, even though it’s been out for more than a month already, is Life in a Day, by Kevin MacDonald. The film is composed of hundreds of clips from youtube, all filmed on the same day, 24th of July, 2010.

I’ve seen come trailers and clips, and the one that left the greatest impression was a nearly ten minute shot (I think it’s cut down to about three minutes in the film) of a Japanese father and son alone in their apartment. Watch it here.

In an interview for The Film Programme on Radio 4 director Macdonald called the clip ‘the best short film I’ve ever seen’.
