Pangea Day, May 10, 2008

Here’s a woman who talks about her wish for world peace and is doing something about it. Her name is Jehane Noujaim. She “unveils her wish: a global acceptance of diversity, mediated through the power of film.” “On May 10, 2008 – Pangea Day – Jehane’s wish will come to fruition as sites in New York City, Rio, London, Dharamsala, Cairo, Jerusalem, and Kigali will be video-conferenced live to produce a 4-hour program of powerful films – supplemented by visionary speakers, and global musicians. The purpose: to use the power of film to promote better understanding of our common humanity. A global audience will watch through the Internet, television, digital cinemas, and mobile phones.”

Listen to her TED talk here. More about Pangea Day.
