Armed violence affects millions of people around the world in numerous different ways.

From February to June 2010 Oxfam called on young people around the world with a story to tell to submit their vision for a documentary film to the 'Shooting Poverty' competition. The topic: to expose the true cost and impact of arms trade and armed violence on poor communities around the world.

More than 60 written submissions were received from 9 countries. A panel of judges selected three projects to be given mentoring, financial and hands-on production support to make their film a reality.

Shooting Poverty brings you three stories from three countries - Burundi, Brazil and India - made by three independent teams of directors. This is a short trailer of these three films:
"Bang for your Buck", Burundi
"April 6th", India
"Grosso Calibre", Brazil
