Details

Both the first feature film shot entirely in Saudi Arabia and the first feature film made by a female Saudi filmmaker, the critically-acclaimed Wadjda proved to be a hit on the festival circuit and was BAFTA-nominated for Best Foreign Language Film in 2014. It tells the story of 10-year-old, converse high-top-sporting Wadjda, who longs for a green bicycle.

When told that little girls in Riyadh don’t own bikes, she takes matters into her own hands and enters a Qur’an reading competition to raise money to buy the bike herself.

Suitable for younger audiences.

“As the first woman to shoot a Saudi Arabian feature film, writer-director Haifaa Al Mansour has already assured herself of a small place in history. And yet Wadjda stands on its own merits.” – The Guardian
