Pangea Day: Saturday, May 10
Pangea Day is an international event that will bring the world together through film.
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. (Watch Pangea Day organizer Jehane Noujaim’s TED Talk about the concept; Noujaim is a 2006 TED Prize winner.)
Live events in Cairo, Kigali, London, Los Angeles, Mumbai and Rio de Janeiro will be linked for a program of powerful films, live music, and visionary speakers including Queen Noor of Jordan, CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, musician/activist Bob Geldof, and Iranian rock phenom Hypernova. Pangea Day is a live broadcast – in seven languages – featuring powerful films, visionary speakers and inspiring music that will reach millions of people worldwide through public and private gathering places and through the Internet, television, digital cinemas and mobile phones.
Join members of the Acumen Fund team at The Paley Center for Media â€“ a great venue for Pangea Day. Starting on Saturday, May 10 from 2:00 to 6:00 pm, the entire Pangea Day will be broadcast live. Don’t miss this opportunity to gather together locally and connect with the international community (through media) globally.
The Paley Center for Media is located on 52nd Street between 6th and 5th Avenue. Pangea Day is a free event – typical admission charges to the Paley Center do not apply, just remember to mention ‘Friends of Pangea Day’ when you arrive. We hope to see you there on Saturday! And if you’re not based in New York (or if you wonâ€™t be here on Saturday), please be sure to check out the Pangea Day web site, where information on thousands of venues can be found with just a few clicks.
