Eatable Films Presents: Soufra (with Food & Drinks by Newcomer Kitchen)

Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema

We join forces with Eatable Films for a delicious celebration of Syrian culture.

Taste the food you see on screen! The event will include food and drink by Toronto's Newcomer Kitchen, a social enterprise employing Syrian women refugees.

Discover the inspiring story of Mariam Shar, a smart and tenacious entrepreneur who has spent her entire life in the Bourj el Baranjneh refugee camp south of Beirut, Lebanon. Together with a group of fellow refugee women from Syria, Palestine and Iraq, Mariam sets out to beat the odds and launch the world’s first refugee-owned food truck. A triumphant testament to the unifying power of food, Soufra shines a light on the people working from within the refugee crisis to break barriers and change their fates.

5:00 PM - Doors Open, VIP cocktail

6:30 PM - Screening  

Stick around for a Q&A with members of Newcomer Kitchen and New York Times writer David Sax.
