On 24 July 2010, thousands of people around the world uploaded videos of ther lives to YouTube to take part in Life In A Day. The resulting feature film directed by Kevin MacDonald and produced by Ridley Scott shows an emotive user-generated content snapshot of life on earth. From the minutiae of personal experience, an epic self-portrait emerges via mass participation, as editor Joe Walker creates a kaleidoscopic compilation from 4,500 hours of footage in 80,000 submissions from 140 nations. Join us for this special preview screening will be introduced by Kate Taylor, Art Programme Manager at FutureEverything, speaking about the role of social media in the narratives of our lives.
