News in Brief: Davis in a Day premiers tonight

What does life in Davis look like?

AggieTV is unveiling its user-generated, student-produced project from last spring, “Davis in a Day,” at 7:30 p.m. in Kleiber 3.

Inspired by Life in a Day, the film by Ridley Scott and Kevin Macdonald, AggieTV set out to film Davis in one 24-hour period from as many angles as possible.

Attendees will get to see Davis as it was on May 10, filmed on gear ranging from professional cameras to cell phones. Anna Oh, executive producer of AggieTV, said students and community members submitted around 50 hours of footage, which has since been edited down to 30 minutes.

“We’re really excited to show the audience what we put together to represent their stories,” she said.

And what can we expect to see?

“Dogs. Dancing. Skydiving,” Oh said.

The event is free, and in addition to the screening, there will be a raffle and a performance by the UC Davis Popping Club.
