I shamefully admit that I finally had the time to watch the entire Life in a Day documentary. And I was moved beyond anything I may have felt before. The entire documentary, I feel, encapsulates the human experience and what it is to be human. If I were to suddenly stand face-to-face with an extraterrestrial being and I would have to explain humanity then I might show this documentary.
It’s wonderful, terrifying, melancholic, fascinating, morbid, disgusting, beautiful, moving, heartbreaking, heartwarming, empathic and the list of suitable adjectives goes on and on.
Just watch it, okay?
