DOXA is proud to present our annual fundraising brunch at Chambar restaurant. Join us for a delicious two-course Belgian-inspired meal, and a sparkling mimosa as well as a thought-provoking discussion and live music!

The event will feature a conversation with Amar Chebib, director of Wajd: Songs of Separation, a film premiering at our 17th Annual Film Festival in May. Amar will be joined by producer Lindsey Ridgway as they present a sneak peek of their feature film about three Syrian refugees who seek solace in music.  

The afternoon will conclude with a musical performance by Farooq Alsamarraie, a Vancouver-based Syrian musician who was trained in Damascus alongside the musicians featured in the film.
