Event description

Description

On behalf of Arab Work Group, we are hosting a film screening for Soufra. The film follows the unlikely and wildly inspirational story of intrepid social entrepreneur, Mariam Shaar – a generational refugee who has spent her entire life in the Burj El Barajneh refugee camp just south of Beirut, Lebanon. The film follows Mariam as she sets out against all odds to change her fate by launching a successful catering company, “Soufra,” and then expand it into a food truck business with a diverse team of fellow refugee woman who now share this camp as their home. Throughout the movie you will find themes of hope and community in times of struggle.



Film to be followed by Q&A panel. Dinner will be provided.

Arabic Interpreter available upon request. Please request interpretation by May 20th, 2019
