Check out this extremely touching video. Is part of a project called Pangea Day. According to its YouTube page, this video is part of a "powerful series of films to be shown on Pangea Day, May 10. The day the world comes together through film."
The goal of Pangea Day is to show people across the world what they have in common and to see past borders, difference and conflict.
There will be locations in Cairo, Kigali, London, Los Angeles, Mumbai and Rio De Janeiro. All these countries will be linked for a live program of powerful films, live music and visionary speakers.
In 2006, filmmaker Jehane Noujaim won the TED Prize, an annual award granted at the TED Conference. She was granted $100,000, and more important, a wish to change the world. Her wish was to create a day in which the world came together through film. Pangea Day grew out of that wish. Watch Jehane Noujaim’s 2006 acceptance speech now. -Pangeaday.org
