USNH Social Justice Cinema presents: SOUFRA + Persian Cuisine- A Fundraiser
Join us for an evening of film and Persian cuisine at the Unitarian Society of New Haven! The film, Soufra, 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. Your ticket will include the film and light fare by Greenleaf Persian Catering. Greenleaf is owned and operated by a refugee family resettled from Iran by IRIS.
Post performance talkback with Chris George, IRIS Executive Director & Sam Rose, Owner Greenleaf Catering.
Proceeds to benefit IRIS - Integrated Refugee & Immigrant Services.
SOUFRA Cookbooks -- unique recipes by refugees featured in the film -- will be available for sale as well.
Proceeds from cookbook sales benefit SOUFRA refugee chefs in Lebanon and IRIS refugees in New Haven!
