Watch “Canada in a Day” on CTV, July 1st & 2nd
danceScape’s Robert Tang & Beverley Cayton-Tang will appear on #CANADAINADAY, a snapshot of Canadian life over a 24-hour time frame.
CANADA IN A DAY premiered on Sunday, June 25 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CTV, CTV Two, and CTV GO, days before Canada celebrates the 150th anniversary of confederation on July 1, 2017. Following the broadcast premiere, the powerful, extraordinarily candid, and moving two-hour film directed by award-winning filmmaker Trish Dolman becomes available to viewers on CraveTV, beginning Friday, June 30.
CANADA IN A DAY’s autobiographical narrative candidly depicts a sun-up-to-sun-down chronology of a day in the life of Canadians: from everyday experiences and momentous milestones, to hardships and human rights issues, including poverty, mental health, and Canada’s healthcare system. The film offers a diversity of voices and moments that echo the country’s vast geography, while highlighting the commonalities that define “Canadian culture”.
On Saturday, Sept. 10, 2016, Canadians from across the country and around the world turned the camera on themselves, filming moments of their lives – from the entertaining and everyday, to the poignant and contemplative. The film chronicles a single day in 21st century life across Canada, crafted for Canadians by Canadians. Offering remarkable insight into the lives, loves, fears, and hopes of a diverse cross section of Canadians from coast-to-coast-to-coast and beyond, the special event receives encore broadcasts on Canada Day, Saturday, July 1 at 9 p.m. ET on CTV and 3 p.m. ET on CTV Two; and on Sunday, July 2 at 2 p.m. ET on CTV.
CANADA IN A DAY is inspired by the original award-winning #KevinMacdonald film Life in a Day which was Executive Produced by #RidleyScott. Shot in 2010 and released in 2011, #LifeinaDay was the remarkable story of one day on Earth. The project garnered more than 80,000 submissions from around the world, and contained footage selected from more than 4,500 hours of deeply personal, powerful moments shot by contributors from Australia to Zambia – from the heart of bustling major cities to some of the most remote places on Earth. Since then, several countries have launched their own In a Day films, including Britain, Italy, Germany, Spain, India, and Japan.
CANADA IN A DAY sponsors are: Ancestry.ca, Dairy Farmers of Canada, and The Royal Canadian Mint. The film’s three partners will feature custom CANADA IN A DAY-inspired content celebrating Canada’s 150th anniversary.
