In partnership with Hydro Studios, the International Rescue Committee, and the African Community Center, No Lost Generation DU is happy to present the Denver premiere of Soufra.

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.

Following the film, an exceptional panel of speakers will take the stage to share their experiences, answer questions, and contribute to the dialogue surrounding some of the film's key concepts. 

Dinner will be provided, with vegetarian options available. Tickets are $15 for students and $20 for non-students. Children 10 are under are free.
