Remember “Life in a Day,” the YouTube movie project from director Kevin MacDonald and produced by Ridley Scott, that got people all over the world to take video of themselves doing stuff on one particular day to create a documentary about a single day on earth?

Well, that movie is here, and it’s now available to watch for free on YouTube (or right here if you wish):

The film was gleaned from 4,500 hours of footage recorded and uploaded to YouTube, and turned into a 90 minute film.

It was actually released in select theaters and at various film festivals, but now it’s on YouTube for all to see. It’s available with subtitles in 25 languages.

Here are a couple of videos from Macdonald and Scott talking about the project:

YouTube said last year that it had received 80,000 video submissions from 192 countries for the film.
