GET UPDATES FROM Katharine Kramer
 
Katharine "Kat" Kramer founded Kat Kramer's Films That Change the World to showcase motion pictures that raise awareness about important social issues. In so doing, she is following in the footsteps of her late father, the legendary producer/director Stanley Kramer, who was known for taking artistic and financial chances by making movies about controversial subjects.

Recently, Ms. Kramer premiered the powerful new documentary Teach Your Children Well, which deals with the growing problem of bullying in schools. Previous selections in her screening series have included The Cove, which exposed the slaughter of dolphins in Japan; Elephants and Man: A Litany of Tragedy, about the suffering of elephants in captivity; and Barbra Streisand's Yentl, which focused attention on women's equality, and was used as a springboard for a discussion about the widespread sexual abuse of women in the Congo.
