Pangea Day: Uniting the World Through Film

May 10 2008 12:00 am













































Pangea Day:







Uniting the World Through Film










Saturday, May 10








Join the World Policy Institute, Center for International Art in Community (CIAC), and CivWorld for a screening of Pangea Day at Demos.








Pangea Day is a global event bringing the world together through film. On May 10, 2008, live events in Cairo, Kigali, London, Los Angeles, Mumbai, and Rio de Janeiro will be linked to produce a 4-hour program of powerful films, live music, and visionary speakers. The program will be broadcast live to millions of people worldwide through the internet, television, and mobile phones.








Why? In a world where people are often divided by borders 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. Movies alone can't change the world. But the people who watch them can.








The 24 short films to be featured have been selected from an international competition that generated more than 2,500 submissions from over one hundred countries. The films were chosen based on their ability to inspire, transform, and allow us see the world through another person's eyes. Details on the Pangea Day films can be viewed here.








In 2006, filmmaker Jehane Noujaim (Control Room, Mokkatam, Different Truth, Startup.com) won the TED Prize, an annual award granted at the TED Conference. She was granted $100,000, and more important, a wish to change the world. Her wish was to create a day in which the world came together through film. Pangea Day grew out of that wish. Watch Jehane Noujaim’s 2006 acceptance speech now.

220 Fifth Avenue, Fifth Floor
