The power of images

Talented documentary maker Jehane Noujaim , who was awarded the 2006 TED prize, speaks of her wish to use the power of images to make people better understand our common humanity, help them “see themselves in others” and accept diversity.

She is taking the steps to make it happen together with a team of other creative visionaires. On May 10th 2008, they are organizing Pangea Day, a 4-hour event to be video-conferenced live to the whole world from New York, London, Rio, Dharamsala, Cairo, Jerusalem and Kigali.

You are invited to participate and contribute with a 5-minute snippet. This short trailer is just an example of what can be done and you can find more information on how to join on the Pangea Day website.

Do you think that people have the power to enact change in our world through images and films?

Comic Vine

Comic Vine is a place for superheroes, where you can not only read about them but also discuss them and create your own. Every superhero has his or her own page, with basic bio information as well as a list of “powers,” such as intellect, super strength, and stamina. Read the whole review on TechCrunch.
