About this event
Please join us on Thursday, June 23 at 6 p.m. for a screening of the film Peace by Chocolate, based on the true story of Tareq Hadhad, a young Syrian refugee as he struggles to settle into small-town life in Antigonish, Nova Scotia.
The screening will be followed by a pre-recorded Q&A with Director Jonathan Keijser, conducted by Alejandra Leipen (District Cinema) and Lina Sergie Attar (CEO, Karam Foundation).
Ticket includes a Peace Chocolate Bar. Syrian food will be sold at the event by Syriasly Delicious.
All proceeds from the event will be donated to Karam Foundation, an organization that invests in young Syrian refugees to help shape a new generation of kind, courageous future Leaders.
