The Undying Moment: The Cameron Kravitt Foundation
A documentary about the Cameron Kravitt Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-for-profit foundation that helps young doctors learn how to speak the hardest words they’ll ever have to say: “your child has died.” In the film, founders Beverly and Jason Kravitt recount the terrible experience of losing their son Cameron Kravitt at birth, and how the news was broken to them in a traumatic way – something that created an impetus for them to establish the foundation and its training seminars. Doctors from Johns Hopkins University, Weill Cornell Medicine, University of Southern California in San Francisco and Cambridge University, UK discuss the importance of this training, while stories of bereaved parents are told through poetry, painting and interviews. To read more about the foundation and to donate, please visit www.cameronkravitt.org. Produced and directed by Minos Papas for the Cameron Kravitt Foundation. A Cyprian Films, New York production.
The Unregulated Arms Trade Spares No One
The global trade in guns, tanks, fighter jets, and ammunition is out of control. Human rights abusers, terrorists, dictators, and tyrants have nearly unrestricted access to weapons. A person dies every minute from armed violence that is fueled by this deadly trade. The casualties can be found in every corner of the world. The unregulated arms trade spares no one. The world has a chance in March to change the current state of play and make the irresponsible weapons trade a thing of the past. The solution: agreeing on a strong Arms Trade Treaty at the United Nations.

What's at stake for equity in the AI revolution? | Trooper Sanders
Artificial intelligence is starting to rapidly change the world. How can we ensure that this change is for the better – and not, as many people fear – a danger for humanity as a whole? Trooper Sanders has worked across business, government, and philanthropy to advance solutions to critical social challenges in the United States and internationally. He served as a White House policy advisor during two administrations and worked on issues ranging from supporting military families – including setting up the public engagement campaign Joining Forces and shepherding a presidential study directive mobilizing non-defense federal agencies – to improving mental health. His Fellowship project, Silicon Main Street: Maximizing the Economic and Equal Opportunity Potential of the Digital, Data, and Automation Era, will identify opportunities for technology-related career pathways for traditionally marginalized populations in industries that are outside of the traditional technology sector. The project will also focus on forging closer ties between traditional civil rights and equal opportunity communities and newer networks shaping the economic, ethical, and social norms of the Digital Age.

Mary Marchal, Oxfam America
This series of videos began as a pilot project March 2013. Taken together, we hope the series will reflect the rich mosaic of Oxfam America. The videos were unscripted—based on informal interviews. Our hope was to create a series of these videos that showcase some of our remarkable staff around the world, our values, and our theory of change—that is, our belief that Oxfam's greatest resource is first and always: people, and our conviction that we each have a crucial role to play in eliminating poverty. Cinematography by Minos Papas. Additional cinematography by Lydia Sudall and Harry Ayiotis Produced by Cyprian Films, New York, and Oxfam Creative Productions. Directed and edited by Minos Papas
