this ground-breaking film is the result of a worldwide “crowd-sourced” film project in which people from all around the world were asked to shoot footage on the same day - july 24, 2010. after an astonishing 80,000 slice-of-life clips were uploaded to youtube, producer ridley scott and oscar-winning director kevin macdonald edited it down to a exhilarating 90 minutes of film. What is most surprising is not the diversity or complexity of the footage, but the deep and resounding humanity of it. set for theatrical release one year later on july 24, 2011, newportfilm brings it to you early.
if you watch the trailer here you'll see the sky lanterns that i previously blogged about here. see all the free films newport FILM is offering this summer here.
