Pangea Day is a global coming together movement where professional and amateur filmmakers submit their own short films. "Why? 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 â€“ to help people see themselves in others â€“ through the power of film." says the Pangea Day website.
The criteria is that the films be thought provoking, inspiring, and share personal experiences with other people you know nothing about and will probably never meet. Pangea Day will take place on May 10th and the driving thought behind it is that images offered by mass media are controlled by vested interests and not by the common person. The video is an entry that was aptly described in YouTube thus: "Inside every tank there is a human being."
