FILM: WADJDA

wadjdaThe Saudi film, Wadjda kicks off at Luna Leederville and SX this week and it’s the first feature film shot entirely in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, where cinemas are not permitted. It’s also directed by that country’s first woman filmmaker, University of Sydney graduate Haifaa Al Mansour, and follows the story of a 10-year-old girl who wants nothing more than to own a bicycle, and so becomes determined to win the cash prize for a Koran recitation competition at her school.
