A Short Film About Guns
"A Short Film About Guns" examines the illegal arms trade and how it functions across the globe. Featuring four experts on arms trafficking who recount their varying first hand experiences with the black market trade in areas of conflict and how the illegal flow of weapons facilitates loss of life and devastation.
As the first Arms Trade Treaty is currently being negotiated at the United Nations, the four experts call on all governments to get a deal made and agree on a legally-binding arms treaty.
Greek-Cypriot director Minos Papas recently partnered with the Control Arms coalition, including Oxfam International, to produce the short film. The online release is aligned with the UN Diplomatic Conference on the Arms Trade Treaty currently held in New York through July 27th.
The film was shot in London, New York City and Seattle.
