Soufra follows the unlikely and wildly inspirational story of social entrepreneur and refugee, Mariam Shaar – a stateless refugee who has spent her entire life in a Lebanese refugee camp. The film follows Mariam as she sets out to launch a successful catering company, “Soufra,” and then expand it into a food truck business with a diverse group of women from Syria, Iraq and Palestine—who also call the camp home. 

FIRST SCREENING: Saturday, February 17 @ 5:30pm at Regal Pioneer Place Stadium 6

SECOND SCREENING: Thursday, February 22 @ 6:00pm at Whitsell Auditorium

PS: If you haven't already seen the Soufra Cookbook, you should take a look. Not only does this cookbook share some of the most treasured recipes that changed the lives of the Soufra women, but it also will give back to the families at the camp. The women of Soufra are full partners in the publication of this book. They will share equally in proceeds from its sales, which will contribute to the ongoing development of the camp’s Children’s Center and to building a school for the children in the camp. We've already raised over 10K for these initiatives - you can purchase the cookbook here.
