This is the last video from my conversation with David, a friend who works for the UN on demilitarization efforts in Sudan. The audio is taken from a conversation we recently had, here in NYC, with video he made while in Sudan.
It is heartening to know that some of the people involved in making policies and developing plans for severely damaged places in the world are creative, down-to-earth and caring. It is easy to only see only the negative decisions being made by people in government and corporate agencies who seems so removed from the reality of situations at hand and never know about the people within the system who work hard on for positive change despite the odds they are up against.

My friend David, made another short visit to NYC. Here, here and here, you can see videos from when I filmed him last year around the same time, we talked about some of his experiences with taking pictures in Africa.
This year, he talked to me about the new job he started organizing and implementing a demilitarizaion effort in Sudan.
There's been quite a lot of tumult there recently, but since African news is not a top priority in US media, we don't get to hear much about it.
Here are some links to info on Sudan:
