The Fruit of Our Labor:
Afghan Perspectives in Film
Filmmaker Michael Sheridan will present and discuss excerpts from the collection of ten remarkable short films presented under the title The Fruit of Our Labor: Afghan Perspectives in Film, a series of short documentaries. The films focus on issues of social and economic development, as documented and told by Afghans themselves, and present intimate glimpses into routine struggles of employment, education and health and of accomplishments and failings at the level of community and infrastructure.
Michael Sheridan is Director of Community Supported Films, a group which seeks to strengthen the documentary storytelling capacity of people in developing countries where objective and accurate information is essential to effective conflict resolution.
