Coming to a sofa near you.. or a wall, or a town square, or a TV, or a mobile phone...
Imagine thousands of people coming together to share their own stories.
Imagine the world connecting in a global day of film.
Imagine watching the tears and laughter, hopes and dreams, of people all across the world.
Well, come May 10th this is about to happen.
Pangea Day, is the result of filmmaker Jehane Noujaim's 2007 TED Wish to Change the World. It will be a global day of international film- an effort to bridge cultural divides and increase our understanding of our global neighbours.
The films will be broadcast live on the internet and television. There will also be a series of main sites in cities across the continents- Cairo, Kigali, London, LA, Mumbai and Rio, along with a growing number of smaller events around the world.
I'll be hosting an event from a sofa in Dublin. You can do so too. To find out more visit the Pangea Day website.
