A groundbreaking film which has impressed international film festival audiences and critics alike, WADJDA offers a moving, rarely seen picture of everyday life in Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia. In this pioneering story, a remarkable 10 year old girl (newcomer Waad Mohammed, in a stunning debut performance) challenges centuries of male tradition when she sets her sights on buying a forbidden bicycle with the cash prize from a Koran recitation competition. This award–winning film is the first feature–length movie shot entirely in Saudi Arabia, and the first by a female Saudi filmmaker.
