As the international community reflects on the impact of more than ten years of war in Afghanistan, Community Supported Film provides an opportunity to also reflect on the situation from an Afghan perspective through Afghan-made documentaries, The Fruit of Our Labor.  Each short documentary offers a personal and firsthand Afghan point of view rarely seen or heard in the US, even after a decade of intense media coverage.  These films bring to life Afghans’ daily efforts to address their challenging social and economic conditions—providing an insider’s perspective beyond the battlefront coverage that dominates western media.  Locals trained by Community Supported Film in documentary filmmaking tell stories from their perspective that can influence local and international views on sustainable paths to a more peaceful and equitable world.

Issue 4 of CONSEQUENCE features fiction by Bob Shacochis, Jenna Wallace, and V. Jo Hsu; poetry by Peter Dale Scott, Afaa Weaver, and Fred Marchant; non-fiction by Laura Harrington, Adriana Paramo, and Nikola Tutek; translations by Mario Susko, Martha Cooley, Antonio Romani, Aria Fani, and Adeeba Talukder; and reviews by Eve Sorum and Michael Shenkman.

CONSEQUENCE Magazine is an international literary journal addressing the culture and consequences of war.  The magazine annually publishes short fiction, poetry, non-fiction, interviews, visual art and reviews.  CONSEQUENCE is an independent, non-profit  magazine, and a 501(c)(3) organization.  Submit, subscribe and donate to the magazine here.
