Conceived and pieced together by Ridley Scott and Kevin MacDonald (The Last King of Scotland), Life in a Day compiles thousands of hours of film shot by regular people, all on July 24, 2010, in an effort to paint a user-submitted portrait of just how much – and how little – can happen in a single day on Earth.

Kind of stonerific, I know. But it's a great idea and idea behind its unveiling – tonight at 8pm EST on its YouTube channel, the film will broadcast live from its physical premiere at Sundance – is forward-thinking and laudable.

Let's all watch together! Aww, love and one and united, etc.
