Golden Globe Award-winner Jared Leto directed a documentary and updated his Instagram account to give more information about his journey making it.
The actor, Jared Leto, describes himself as a documentary nut and he filmed a documentary named ‘A Day In the Life of America‘ that was out on January 11, 2021, on PBS.
On Monday, he took Instagram to share detailed information about the film which was an idea he had been thinking about for a really long time. Therefore, he thought of it as an opportunity to turn the camera on ourselves and capture a portrait of America, and these really tumultuous and fascinating times that the country was passing through.
In the continuation of his rather long post, he explained his love for documentaries came from his childhood when his mother subscribed to National Geographic and he got the inspiration from a project where they sent photographers all over the country to capture a single day in the life of the US.
Furthermore, Jared Leto described his project as a time capsule that people could dig up many years from now giving insights into who they are, what kind of people they are, and what kind of time that they’re living in.
The actor was really excited for people to watch it and hoped that this film will show there are still many people who believe and fight for the American Dream, even when that dream seems to be taken away from them.
Here’s the caption:
“Our film A Day In the Life of America premieres tonight @ 10/9c on @pbs @independentlens & the PBS video app. Link in stories to check your local listing.
This film was an idea I’d been thinking about for a really long time and I thought it could be an opportunity to turn the camera on ourselves and capture a portrait of this country and these really tumultuous and fascinating times that we’re living in.
When I was a kid, my mother subscribed to National Geographic. It was our gateway to the world, as it is for so many. They had a project where they sent photographers all over the country to capture a single day in the life of the United States, and that always stuck with me.
I look at this film as a time capsule. It’s something that you could dig up 100 years from now, even 1,000 years from now, and it would give us some insight into who we are, what kind of people we are, and what kind of time that we’re living in.
Seeing the final product, formed of the 92 incredibly talented crews, covering all 50 states plus Puerto Rico and DC, has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my career to date.
This movie documents a moment of real division. I hope it acts as a gateway to understand that although we may share different views, fundamentally the one thing that connects us is this country. I like to think of this as an opportunity to begin a dialogue
for those who have arguably been forgotten, or at least feel forgotten. I hope the impact of this film begins to show there are many who believe and fight for the American Dream, even when that dream seems to be taken away from them.
Excited for you all to see it. – Jared 🌅🌅🌅”
