What's Slovak at Sundance 2011?

Academy Award-winning director Kevin Macdonald (State of Play, Last King of Scotland, Touching the Void) has completed the making of Life in a Day, a documentary film capturing life around the world in a single day – July 24, 2010. Drawing from 4.500 hours of footage sent in from 192 countries, the film was produced by Ridley Scott’s Scott Free UK in partnership with YouTube.

Contributors whose submissions were chosen are credited as co-directors and twenty-six of them had been invited to attend the world premiere of the film on January 27, 2011 as part of the Sundance Film Festival. The invited co-directors include Marek Mackovič, the director, scriptwriter and producer of the Slovak footage coming from his upcoming film Okwhan Yoon.

Okwhan Yoon, directed by Marek Mackovič and Dušan Milko, tells the story of a Korean lawyer who has been cycling the world for nine years to fight for freedom and inspire people to reconsider their fast and busy lifestyles. The film is scheduled for release in autumn 2012.
