See How the Rest of the World Celebrated with 'Christmas in a Day'
A few years ago, exec producer Ridley Scott and The Last King of Scotland/Into the Void director Kevin Macdonald teamed up for a pretty impressive crowdsourced documentary. Life in a Day collected footage from all around the world to show people what it was like to be alive on July 24th, 2010. The feature length documentary premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and is available to watch on YouTube right now, and a holiday themed variation on that idea has arrived in the form of Christmas in a Day. Macdonald scales the scope back a bit by only featuring submissions from people celebrating Christmas in the United Kingdom. It's a nice dose of genuine Yuletide joy to check out on the day after Christmas. Watch it below!
Christmas in a Day is a document of who we were at Christmas 2012. Directed by Kevin Macdonald and produced by Scott Free Productions and Ridley Scott Associates, the film presents one of the few moments in the calendar where the whole nation steps back from ordinary life. Made possible by Sainsbury's, the film was an experiment to reveal how Britain really celebrates Christmas. Kevin Macdonald (The Last King of Scotland) directs the film which features some lovely Christmas mornings, an unlucky goose, and families enjoying the limited time they have with each other around the holidays. How's that for holiday cheer?
