he Lark Theater is proud to participate in Pangea Day, a global event bringing the world together through the power of film.
On May 10, 2008, locations in Cairo, Kigali, London, Los Angeles, Mumbai, and Rio de Janeiro will be linked for a live program of powerful films, music, and visionary speakers. The entire program will be broadcast – in seven languages – to millions of people worldwide through the internet, television, and mobile phones - and onto our screen at the Lark Theater in historic downtown Larkspur.
The 24 short films to be featured have been selected from an international competition that generated more than 2,500 submissions from over one hundred countries. The films were chosen based on their ability to inspire, transform, and allow us see the world through another person's eyes.
The program will also include a number of exceptional speakers and musical performers. Queen Noor of Jordan, CNN's Christiane Amanpour, musician/activist Bob Geldof, and Iranian rock phenom Hypernova are among those taking part.
In 2006, filmmaker Jehane Noujaim won the TED Prize, an annual award granted at the TED (Technology, Education and Design) 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. Previous TED Prize winners include former President Bill Clinton, Singer/activist Bono, Google's Larry Brilliant, novelist Dave Eggers and religious scholar Karen Armstrong.
