A Voice in Images

Participating in the Pangea Day project could be an interesting and powerful learning project for youth (adults too)–particularly those who feel like their voice goes unheard. I’m hoping some black and brown American stories will be included in this. The deadline for submitting is February 15th, 2008 and films must be a maximum of 5 minutes long (check the website for some interesting samples).

Here’s a big idea: Pangea Day plans to use the power of film to bring the world a little closer together. We’re divided by borders, race, religion, conflict… but most of all by misunderstanding and mistrust. Pangea Day seeks to overcome that — to help people see themselves in others — through the power of film.

On May 10, 2008 — Pangea Day — sites in Cairo, Dharamsala, Kigali, London, New York City, Ramallah, Rio de Janeiro and Tel Aviv will be linked to produce a 4-hour program of powerful films, visionary speakers, and uplifting music. The program will be broadcast live to the world through the Internet, television, digital cinemas, and mobile phones.

Your film could be part of it. The online video revolution has helped spawn a new generation of grass-roots film-makers worldwide. Much of the output, of course, is mediocre. But hidden in there are amazing talents capable of using film to astonishing effect… and capable of telling stories that can create powerful bonds between us.
