2020, a year for the books, takes center stage in Kevin Macdonald’s and Ridley Scott’s YouTube Originals film, Life In A Day 2020.
YouTube dropped the trailer for the Sundance Film Festival official selection on Monday. Set to premiere on YouTube starting February 6, Life In A Day 2020 showcases what a single day in 2020 looked like all over the world. On July 25, 2020 people all over the globe filmed their day amid the coronavirus pandemic, social unrest, climate issues and more to bring an unfiltered look at a historic year.
