Wadjda

Germany, Saudi Arabia | 2012 | Haifaa al-Mansour

Wadjda

This historic and acclaimed crowd-pleaser was the first feature film shot entirely in Saudi Arabia and also the first feature film by a female Saudi director. It tells of an 11-year-old Riyadh girl, Wadjda, who longs for a bicycle so that she can race one of her friends, a neighborhood boy. But bike-riding by girls is frowned upon in her country, so when Wadjda's mother refuses to buy the bicycle, the determined moppet sets out to see what she can do by herself. Has a 99% "fresh" rating on RottenTomatoes.com.

98 min. 35mm. Subtitles.

Presented as part of Cleveland Bike Month. Show your bicycle helmet at the box office and pay only $7. sonyclassics.com/wadjda/
