Event Details

Screening of Wadjda, preceded by an on-screen interview with the director

Wadjda is the first feature-length film to be made by a woman in Saudi Arabia and one of few films to emerge from the country. Director Haifaa al-Mansour critiques her country’s gender politics through the frame of a light and unassuming story about a young girl. Wadjda, a ten-year-old growing up in a world dominated by men,wonders if life could be different. She concocts a plan to buy a bicycle, in defiance of traditional rules that forbid girls to ride them and enters a Qur’an recital competition with a cash prize. The film gives audiences a rare look at the dominance of men and conservatism in Saudi society while putting women in the forefront.
