SOUFRA follows the inspirational story of intrepid social entrepreneur, Mariam Shaar - a refugee who has spent her life in a refugee camp near Beirut, Lebanon. The film follows Mariam and fellow refugee women as they set out to change their fate by launching a catering/food truck company: "Soufra". Together, they heal the wounds of war through the unifying power of food while taking their future into their own hands. There are subtitles.  Sponsored by LWV Piedmont and LWV Oakland.   The Middle Eastern food truck, Shrimp Falafel, will have food for sale before the film.  For information contact Christy VanSlyke  christy [at] diversityfilmseries.org
