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 strived to overcome these divisions — to help people see themselves in others — through the power of film.
e2k served as the Executive Producer for the global media event that used the power of film to enable people around the world to see each other through a different lens. e2k produced the main event at Sony Studios as well as five remote events in Brazil, Rwanda, England, Egypt and India. The four hour, live event was broadcast to 120 countries in seven languages, with integrated video feeds from over 1,500 self-organized events in more than 40 countries. In addition to short films focusing on “human universal” themes, the show featured inspirational messages from Desmond Tutu, Queen Noor, Goldie Hawn, Jean-Paul Sampatu, Cameron Diaz among others. Pangea Day was a project by TED Conferences.
Locations in Cairo, Kigali, London, Los Angeles, Mumbai, and Rio de Janeiro were linked for a live program of powerful films, live music, and visionary speakers. The entire event was broadcast in seven languages to millions via the internet, television, and mobile phones.
Throughout the day, participants heard from an extraordinary lineup of speakers and musical performers: Queen Noor of Jordan, CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, Lisa Ling, Dave Stewart and friends, Gilberto Gil, and Iranian rock phenoms Hypernova were among those taking part.
