*Details:*

Boston filmmaker Michael Sheridan had a vision: put video cameras into 
the hands of ordinary men and women in Afghanistan, and let them tell  the
stories of their daily lives, struggles and aspirations – stories  that
would break through the relentless battlefront coverage in the  media, and
bring to life the people’s own efforts to address their  challenging
social and economic conditions and provide a fresh
perspective on the needs and issues of the ordinary people of Afghanistan.

Last fall, Sheridan conducted an intensive 5-week training of 10 Afghans 
in documentary production, and will present a collection of their short 
films, /The Fruits of Our Labor/, on Thursday, February 17, at 7:30pm at 
the Arlington Center for the Arts Theater, 41 Foster Street, Arlington,
MA.

Each story is unique, yet each speaks to the same universal goal of 
overcoming the odds and aspiring to build a better future for oneself, 
one's children and one's country.  The films will be followed by a 
discussion and Q&A with Michael Sheridan.

Tickets will be available at the door.  Admission is free, but donations 
will be collected to support the work of Community Supported Film.
