Pangea Day (May 10) Movies, Music: Around the World and Online
Think local, live global.
On May 10, Pangea Day, the brainchild of Jehane Noujaim wants to (I quote) "bring the world together through film".
Why? Their answer: "In a world where people are often divided by borders, difference, and conflict, it's easy to lose sight of what we all have in common. Pangea Day seeks to overcome that – to help people see themselves in others – through the power of film."

Locations include the Jali Gardens in Kigali, Rwanda (pictured above, from their site) which is not your usual global do gooder spot.
The global outlook reminds me of one time music label 'Pangaea' which led me to the Pangaea (or Pangea) Theory that "all present continents were once together and collectively known as a 'supercontinent' called a Pangaea. The word 'Pangaea' means 'all lands' in Greek, accurately defining the way the continents were 200 millions years ago before it split up. These split-up pieces drifted slowly apart and became the way they are today".
