One thing that can be said about the Sundance premiere of the experimental crowd-sourced documentary "Life in a Day": It may set a record for most people on the same stage for a Q-and-A.
The YouTube-powered film will have 26 co-directors in attendance at the premiere, Thursday, Jan. 27, at Park City's Eccles Theatre.
The movie is made up of footage submitted by regular people, depicting what was happening in a single day: July 24, 2010. More than 4,500 hours of footage was submitted, from 192 countries. Director Kevin Macdonald ("State of Play," "The Last King of Scotland") and his crew gave co-directing credit to anyone whose footage made the final cut.
The footage from the 26 contributors invited to Park City includes, a press release said, "a Korean man who has been cycling the world for nine years, a young mother battling cancer, and a Russian free-runner making Moscow his playground."
