The Fruit of Our Labor: Afghan Perspectives in Film with Michael Sheridan
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.

The Green Mountain Global Forum promotes greater awareness and understanding of global issues by bringing knowledgeable and thought provoking speakers to the Mad River Valley; thereby, encouraging community connections and involvement while inspiring change and action.

Thank you to Nancy Turner and Tara Hamilton for making this event happen!

Since the U.S. military’s withdrawal from Kabul last year, the Sponsor Circle Program for Afghans has helped over 600 Afghans restart their lives. The Biden administration is preparing to turn the experiment into a private-sponsorship program for refugees admitted through the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program and is asking organizations [and individuals] to team up with it to launch a pilot program by the end of 2022.
