06 Jun Pilgrim Media & Rebelhouse Team On SOUFRA
We’re excited to announce that we’re teaming up with Pilgrim Media Group to produce SOUFRA!
From the official announcement: “Pilgrim Media Group is making its first foray into the feature documentary space, teaming with Rebelhouse Group on Soufra, a documentary feature from director Thomas Morgan (Waiting For Mamu). Kathleen Glynn (Bowling For Columbine) is producing, with Morgan, Trevor Hall and Craig Piligian serving as producers and Susan Sarandon executive producer. The docu chronicles the story of Mariam Shaar who, along with a diverse group of equally driven women, transcended the limitations of life in the Burl El Barajneh refugee camp outside of Beirut to launch a catering company named Soufra (Arabic for “feast”), mobilizing a group of Syrian, Iraqi, Palestinian, and Lebanese women usually regulated work cleaning or in factories. Her goal is to own and operate a Soufra food truck and use its revenue to build a children’s center in the refugee camp. Pilgrim’s VP Documentary Films Sarba Das and Rebelhouse president Hall brokered the deal on the project, which just wrapped production.”
