FilmSoc Week 5: WADJDA
5 April, 2016
RC Mills Lecture Room 209
The first feature film shot entirely in Saudi Arabia and the first feature-length film made by a female Saudi director, Wadjda is the simple and brave debut by Haifaa al-Mansour, which played the Sydney Film Festival to much acclaim back in 2013.
Telling the story of a young Saudi Arabian girl who dreams of owning a green bicycle that she passes in a store every day on her way to school, Wadjda features fascinating social commentary complemented by a tremendous lead performance and clever writing.
Find us on Tuesday in RC Mills Lecture Room 209. We'll have pizza from 5pm and the screening will start at about 5:15pm. We'll be heading to the Forest Lodge Hotel afterwards for post-film drinks and discussion.
