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.

A year after the Taliban took power, humanitarian needs are rising even as foreign aid has dried up.

During the former Islamic Republic, foreign aid grants funded 75 percent of public spending. Since the Taliban takeover in August 2021, the United States has provided $775 million in humanitarian assistance to Afghanistan, but the UN says at least $4.4 billion is needed to address the emergency needs of more than 24 million Afghans – 60 percent of the population.
