'Soufra' Documentary

Documentary (2017, 1 hr, 13 min)

"Soufra" follows the inspirational story of intrepid social entrepreneur, Mariam Shaar—a refugee who has spent her entire life in the Burl El Barajneh refugee camp South of Beirut, Lebanon. The film follows Mariam and a diverse team of fellow refugee women as they set out to change their fate by launching a catering company, “Soufra,” and then expand 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.
