Germany in a day, by Sönke Wortmann
by Bénédicte Prot
- Germans were invited to film themselves on Saturday 20 June, for anything ranging from just a few seconds to 24 hours, in order to take part in Deutschland. Made by Germany, similar to Life in a Day
Director Sönke Wortmann, the man behind the popular titles The Miracle of Bern, Germany: A Summer’s Fairytale [+see also:
film profile] and Pope Joan [+see also:
film profile], invited the people of Germany to film themselves on Saturday 20 June, for anything ranging from just a few seconds to the entire day.
For Life in a Day, a similar YouTube project instigated by Ridley Scott, 80,000 internet users sent in 4,500 hours of film. Wortmann hopes to do even better and is looking to receive contributions from 100,000 individuals, which 16 people will then view in order to select the choicest fragments, which will then be used to create the film Deutschland. Made by Germany.
