On May 10th, 2008, the we have the opportunity to come together through film. It is Pangea Day. A first.
What is Pangea Day?
According to Pangea.org:
“Pangea Day taps the power of film to strengthen tolerance and compassion while uniting millions of people to build a better future. In a world where people are often divided by borders, difference, and conflict, it’s easy to lose sight of what we all have in common. Pangea Day seeks to overcome that — to help people see themselves in others — through the power of film.”
Sites in Cairo, Kigali, London, Los Angeles, Mumbai, and Rio de Janeiro will be linked live. Programs will consist of film, speakers and uplifting music, and will be broadcast live through the many forms of technology available today: the Web, TV, Digital Movies and mobile phones.
Organizers will also facilitate activities around the world by connecting inspired viewers with numerous organizations that are already doing community building work.
