Open Air Screen Make Outdoor Film Screenings Possible on Pangea Day
On May 10, 2008, Pangea Day venues in Cairo, Dharamsala, Jerusalem, Kigali, London, New York City, Ramallah and Rio de Janeiro will be linked to produce a 4-hour program of powerful films, visionary speakers, and uplifting music. More importantly, the world will be watching as the program will be broadcast live through the Internet, television, digital cinemas, and mobile phones.
An Open Air Cinema screen was used in Kigali, Rwanda during the Pangea Day event. Thousands of participants in Rwanda were able to join in Pangea Day celebrations through the use of an Open Air Cinema inflatable movie screen.
Movies alone can't change the world, but the people who watch them can, says event organizer Jehane Noujaim. If you had the world's attention for five minutes, what story would you tell? At these screenings, Pangea provided people immediate, practical opportunities to put their inspiration to work through diverse organizations working to solve the challenges that sooner or later touch everyone on the planet.
