Bristol Palestine Film Festival presents
plus food and post screening discussion
Documentary, 2017 | Dir: Thomas Morgan | 73 minutes
Soufra tells 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. Through the unifying power of food they take the future into their own hands.
The film will be followed by a panel discussion (details tbc) and Palestinian-inspired food, made by the team at St George’s café.
The ticket price includes: film, food and discussion.
