Pangea Day!

by Andre on 11 May 2008

Pangea Day is a global event bringing the world together through film.

Why? 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.

It’s an amazing concept, and it’s happening right now. Watch it here on the Pangea Day web site. The moment I tuned in, they just happened to be playing my favourite passage from Carl Sagan, perhaps my favourite passage ever:

I love the idea of watching the movies simultaneously with people all around the world, but I just hope they will make all the films available when it’s over so that you and I can catch everything we’ve missed.

Happy Pangea Day! Enjoy.
