A stirring tale of empowerment, the documentary "Soufra" shows how societal change can begin with small steps.
To consider the long-standing Bourj al Barajneh is to consider the true humanity of refugees, who have hopes, dreams, lives to live and work to do. "Soufra" efficiently and effectively illustrates those ideas.
Soufra's lasting impression is one of empowerment and the energizing sense of purpose and community that the women derive from the enterprise along with their incomes.
Cinematographer Johny Karam lovingly captures Soufra's enticing dishes, but his strength is an ability to open up cramped quarters.
Tells the uplifting story of the 68-year-old Palestinian woman, Mariam Alshaar.
The food looks good. How could anyone resist?
It is not just a story about the terrible plight of refugees. It is also the story of hope, and hope is a basic ingredient of life in very short supply among the world's refugees.
Take an open mind and a full stomach to this documentary, which provides nourishment for both the appetite and the brain.
It's a documentary full of little details that open up broader perspectives, and it serves as a reminder that refugees have the same ambition and desire to improve their own lives and others' as people lucky enough to come from stable countries.
Well-directed documentary about a Palestinian woman who starts a catering business in a refugee camp.
