Fall Film Series Fall Film Series
Wadjda tells the story of a young Saudi girl (the titular Wadjda), who dreams of owning a bike. Seeing bike-riding as unfit for a young girl, her family is unwilling to purchase her the bike, so Wadjda enters a Quran reciting competition in hopes of winning the money to buy the bike for herself. This film was the first feature-length film shot entirely in Saudi Arabia as well as the first made by a female Saudi director (Haifaa al-Masour). (98 minutes)
