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. Locations in Cairo, Kigali, London, Los Angeles, Mumbai, and Rio de Janeiro were linked for a live program of powerful films, live music, and visionary speakers. The entire event was broadcast—in seven languages—to millions via the internet, television, and mobile phones.
(The first-ever Pangea Day took place on May 10, 2008—I’ve been wanting to watch more of the movies and to post something about it ever since… but it took a sick-day to finally proffer that opportunity. Thanks for the links, Gregor.)
