Community Supported Film is proud to announce a screening of The Fruit of Our Labor at St. Peter’s Presbyterian Church in Spencertown, New York!
St. Peter's Presbyterian Church and Chatham Synagogue

Date and Time:
November 17, 7:30 – 9:30 PM.

Location:

at the junction with NYS Route 203

The event is sponsored by St. Peter’s Presbyterian Church and the Chatham Synagogue as the last segment of their 5-part film series, “Tales that Matter: An Interfaith Social Justice Film Series” that began this past August. The series presents films that focus on social change, but also promotes interfaith cooperation within a community.

A selection of films from the Fruit of Our Labor series will be screened in addition to a discussion about the series. There will also be a presentation on the continued mission of CSFilm to strengthen the documentary storytelling capacity in countries in crisis with a focus on socio-economic development issues.

The Fruit of Our Labor is a documentary series made by Afghan filmmakers that chronicle 10 different stories of a day in the life in Afghanistan. The series  showcases Afghans working to address the socio-economic challenges they face every day. The issues presented in the films are rarely seen in mainstream media despite the intense coverage of the country and its people for the past decade.

Over the next weeks they would be beaten at Taliban checkpoints, endure crushing crowds and be threatened and sworn at by soldiers from around the world.
