Saudi Arabia 2014

A rebellious Saudi Arabian girl hatches a plan to get her hands on the bicycle she craves in this coming-of-age story from first time director Haifaa Al-Mansour. Living within a conservative suburb of Riyadh, eleven-year-old Wadjda has her heart set on a green bicycle so that she can beat the boys in their neighbourhood races. But when her mother forbids it, anticipating a reaction from a society that disapproves of women riding bicycles, an enterprising Wadjda decides to raise the money herself by entering a local Qur’an reading competition that offers a cash prize. A gem of a film with an assured performance by Waad Mohammed in the title role.
