Feature segment with a new guest each podcast.

For this episode, we invited Dr. Thomas A. Morgan, an award-winning filmmaker to speak about his personal leap of faith—leaving his cushy banking career to pursue his passion of documentary filmmaking.

His new film, Soufra documents the unlikely yet heartwarming entrepreneurial journey of refugee Mariam Shaar. Mariam is a generational Palestinian refugee, who has spent her life in Beirut’s ​Burj El Barajneh​ refugee camp. The film chronicles Mariam’s awe-inspiring movement to create ​SOUFRA, a catering company and her tumultuous journey to expand it into a successful food-truck business alongside a dynamic team of fellow refugee women.

You can catch Soufra at ​The Projector from 6th September 2018.
