Pangea Day Approaches

9 May 2008 · 2 Comments

Pangea Day, the international day of film, begins tomorrow (20:00 in Germany, 10:00 in Alaska). Inspired by Jehane Noujaim, winner of the 2006 TED prize, the idea of Pangea Day is to begin the world togetheer through film. 24 short films in 4 hours. I have read, watched, and heard much about this event now. There are a number of ways to watch – TV, public events, private events, streamed through the internet.

I think this is going to be pretty amazing. I am very much looking forward to it.  If you have nothing else going on (or even if you do), I think this would be a very inspiring and worthwhile way to spend part of your day.

    Darn, missed it! May be next year. Thanks for the info, Bob! And hope you’re doing well. The May weather in Zurich is much nicer than the April weather has been this year.
