Afghans tell their story through film

“Brewing Tea in a Kettle of War,” a program consisting of short films made by Afghans, will be shown at the Northshore UU Church on Sunday, March 13, from 7 to 8:30 p.m.

Nearly a decade after the fall of the Taliban regime and in spite of the infusion of billions of dollars in international aid for the reconstruction of Afghanistan, the lives of ordinary Afghans have not changed significantly. This collection of short films, made by Afghans, brings to life ordinary Afghans’ efforts to address their challenging social and economic conditions.

Each story is unique, yet each speaks to the same universal goal of overcoming the odds and aspiring to build a better future for oneself, one’s children, and one’s country. Join us for a screening of several of these films, followed by a discussion with director Michael Sheridan, who heads Community Supported Film and is responsible for putting together this important collection.
