A film by Thomas Morgan
Monday 8 October
Join us for the UK premiere of Soufra, which follows the inspirational story of intrepid social entrepreneur, Mariam Shaar – a refugee who has spent her entire life in the Burj El Barajneh refugee camp south of Beirut, Lebanon.
The film follows Mariam and a diverse team of fellow refugee women who share the camp as their home, as they set out to change their fate by launching a catering company, “Soufra,” and then expanding its reach outside the camp with a food truck business. Together, they heal the wounds of war through the unifying power of food while taking their future into their own hands.
