244ryanmeg092806.jpgAngelina Jolie joins humanitarian kindred spirits Cameran Diaz, Meg Ryan, and Goldie Hawn to name just a few to support a landmark event to take place May 10, 2008 called Pangea Day.

Born out of world-renowned documentarian Jehane Noujam’s vision, Pangea Day invites international filmmakers to submit entries that will be broadcast around the world that will spark a new type of dialogue that will ultimately inspire world peace. With hosting sites in New York City, Rio, London, Dharamsala, Cairo, Jerusalem, and Kigali, a combined 20-30 short films from around the world will be video-conferenced live to produce a 4-hour program of supplemented by visionary speakers, and global musicians. The programming will air live May 10 on television, online, digital cinemas and mobile phones.

According to an article:

“The idea came from the belief that film can create a ripple effect of dialogue,” said Noujaim, who directed the 2004 documentary “Control Room,” about coverage of the Iraq War. Pangea Day is being billed as an antidote to a world in which “people are divided by borders, race, religion and conflict but most of all by misunderstanding and mistrust,” the organization said. The question to amateur and professional filmmakers is, “If they had the world’s attention for five minutes, what story would they tell?” she said. The deadline for submissions is Jan. 15.

Check out the website for more details and stay tuned for updates of this amazing multi-media humanitarian effort.
