Little Tea Shop

About the Documentary

Downtown Memphis has changed a lot over the past hundred years, but The Little Tea Shop restaurant, founded by two women in 1918, has been a constant. This documentary (directed by Molly J. Wexler & Matteo Servente) explores the meaning of community through the restaurant's patrons and its past, and most of all, through the eyes of Suhair Lauck. A Palestinian immigrant who started running this traditional southern-style luncheonette in 1982, "Miss Sue" continues to cultivate the magic that is The Little Tea Shop. Premieres Friday, July 10 at 7:30pm on WKNO-TV, followed by a Facebook Live filmmaker chat online.
