PANGEA DAY: THE GLOBAL CAMPFIRE

Pangea Day taps the power of film to strengthen tolerance and compassion while uniting millions of people to build a better future.

CAN FILMS CHANGE THE WORLD?

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.

WHAT IF YOU COULD SEE THE WORLD
THROUGH SOMEONE ELSE’S EYES?

Inside every tank there is a human being. See the world through someone else’s eyes. Pangea Day – May 10, 2008.
