The first film ever shot entirely in Saudi Arabia, and the first Saudi feature directed by a woman, ‘Wadjda’ is the story of a fun-loving, entrepreneurial 10-year-old girl living in a suburb of Riyadh. When Wadjda sees a beautiful green bicycle for sale, she wants it desperately, but her mother won't allow her to have it, fearing repercussions from a conservative society, so Wadjda decides to raise the money herself. Just as she is losing hope, Wadjda hears of a cash prize for a Koran recitation competition at her school... ‘Wadjda’ won three awards at the Venice Film Festival, and was named Best Film at the Dubai International Film Festival last year.
