Back in July, we reported on the fascinating documentary project Life in a Day. Produced by Ridley Scott and directed by Kevin Macdonald (State of Play), the documentary was compiled from users submitting footage they took on July 24, 2010 to YouTube. Designed as a time capsule and as an experiment in social filmmaking, the film is scheduled to make its worldwide debut at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival.
While Steve was at AFM (American Film Market), he grabbed an image of the promo poster and synopsis. Hit the jump to check them out.
