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.
