Bearing the Weight from CSFilm’s collection The Fruit of Our Labor will be screened at the Flagstaff Mountain Film Festival in Flagstaff, Arizona from October 10th – 14th!

Bearing the Weight is a film by Mona about an Afghan woman disabled from the war who learns to overcome the ‘paralysis of her soul’.

The 2012 festival will take place Oct 10th-14th at the historic Orpheum Theater.

The Flagstaff Mountain Film Festival’s mission is to provide a cultural alternative to the mainstream commercial film experience and to celebrate, promote, nurture and teach non-fiction filmmaking. The festival seeks to provide a window to the world and screen movies that inspire change.
