Noujaim’s TED prize speech

Pangea Day 2008



In 2003, Egyptian-American filmmaker Jehane Noujaim went to Iraq with no funding and little more than a conviction that the American public wasn’t hearing the whole story about the Iraq war. Traveling between U.S. media headquarters and Al Jazeera, Noujaim captured in the film Control Room the divergent ways that Arab and Western media covered the war. The film aired before American and Arab audiences, shaking false stereotypes on both sides.

After receiving the prestigious TED prize in 2006, Noujaim founded Pangea Day, a global independent film festival that is more about peace-making and cultural understanding than movies. “I think everybody’s had … watching a very powerful film, that feeling of transformation. How can we use that … to create a movement?
