From director Haifaa Al Mansour comes Saudi Arabias’s first ever female- directed film. A courageous young girl who enters her school’s Koran recitation competition hoping to raise the remaining funds she needs in order to buy the green bicycle that has captured her eye. Enriched with cultural references to Saudi Arabia’s relatively closed society, Mansour has yet managed to keep the balance between these underlying issues and Wadjda’s vibrantly uplifting story. Receiving huge amounts of critical acclaim and numerous awards from across the world, this delightful tale will be sure to win over your heart.
