A Film by Thomas A. Morgan

SOUFRA follows the inspirational story of intrepid social entrepreneur, Mariam Shaar – a refugee who has spent her entire life in the 69-year-old Burl El Barajneh refugee camp south of Beirut, Lebanon.

"The footage of the food is positively mouthwatering, a salient reminder of its ability to unite people within a culture as well as outside it." - Kathleen Sachs, Chicago Reader

"A stirring tale of empowerment, the documentary "Soufra" shows how societal change can begin with small steps." - Andy Webster, New York Times
