Views from Afghanistan: Then and Now

Ten years ago ten Afghan filmmakers – with the assistance of Roslindale’s Community Supported Film (CSFilm) – made a series of short documentaries showing the lives of their countrymen and women. The docs provided a ground level view of life in the war ravaged country as individuals began to rebuild. 

Now those filmmakers are either refugees, or hiding in Afghanistan. 

JP Movie Night will be showing a series of those documentaries hosted by CSFilm’s Executive Director, Michael Sheridan. Additionally, there will be an attempt to have a live conversation with one – or several – of the filmmakers that evening. All proceeds from the evening will go toward CSFilm’s Fund for Afghan Evacuation and Resettlement, dedicated to bringing the filmmakers and their families to safety. 

When global tragedies happen we feel powerless. They often seem too far removed from our daily lives. This promises to be a night where your participation can save the lives of artists who have been harmed by a faraway tragedy, and perhaps even interact with them directly. 

Tickets are $40 each (it’s a fundraiser!), and can be purchased HERE.

Date and time: Sat, December 4, 2021, 7:00 PM – 9:30 PM EST, Add to calendar

Location: Video Underground, 3203 Washington Street Boston, MA 02130

All attendees will need to be fully vaccinated prior to, and masked during, the screening.

By imposing new restrictions on the media and female actors, the Taliban have once again reaffirmed their misogynistic ideology, rights advocates have said.

Afghanistan’s Taliban rulers unveiled a new set of restrictions on Afghan media earlier this week, banning television channels from showing dramas and soap operas featuring women actors.
