Two years ago, filmmaker Jehane Noujaim won the annual TED Prize and was granted one wish to change the world. Her wish was to create a day in which the world would be united through film.
This Saturday, Noujaim’s wish will become a reality and will hopefully inspire people worldwide. Starting at 2PM there will be a live broadcast, which will include four hours of musical performances, influential speakers, and 24 short films. Broadcasting from six countries, the program will be streaming online at http://www.pangeaday.org. There are also local events you can attend to watch the program- find out if there’s one near you (link).
