Dir: Kevin Macdonald | Prod: Liza Marshall | Mus: Harry Gregson-Williams & Matthew Herbert | Ed: Joe Walker

Compiled from 4,500 hours of footage submitted by people from 192 different countries, Kevin Macdonald’s very affecting documentary paints a touching, skilfully edited portrait of human life on earth on the 24th July 2010. And, filled as it is with scenes that will likely make you laugh, cry, wince, stir, tut, and – above all else – empathise, Life in a Day is a work rich in rare, world-shrinking humanity.
