In 2006, filmmaker Jehane Noujaim wished for a day where people all over the world would unite through the power of film. Now, two years later, Jehane’s wish is coming true. Millions of people in more than 150 countries will come together this Saturday at 18:00 GMT to watch a 4-hour program of 24 short films from storytellers around the world. Films were chosen based on their ability to inspire, transform and allow us to see the world through another person’s eyes. Pangea Day films will be coupled with talks from CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, Queen Noor of Jordan, child soldier Ishmael Beah, and many more. The program will be hosted by Lisa Ling, Current TV’s Max and Jason, and June Arunga. Pangea Day will also include live music, including performances by the Eurythmics‘ Dave Stewart, Gilberto Gil, Rokia Traore, Mohamed Mounir and Iranian rock band Hypernova.
Think of it as a global campfire, and an opportunity to take part in a moment in history. Watch on the Internet: Watch the live webcast on MSN International!
