International Film Series
This month's film:
Wadjda (2012) – Saudi Arabia, 98 minutes
Wadjda, an enterprising 11-year-old Saudi girl living in the capital Riyadh, dreams of owning a green bicycle that she passes on her way to school each day. She decides to participate in her school’s Quran recital competition in an effort to win the cash prize and purchase the bike. WADJDA was the first feature film shot entirely in Saudi Arabia, and is the first feature-length film made by a female Saudi director. It won numerous awards at film festivals around the world.
Join us each month to watch a recent or classic foreign film. All films are previewed and selected by a librarian, and will be shown with English subtitles. Due to their sometimes mature themes and content, these films are recommended for adult audiences. Please note: no food or beverages are permitted in the auditorium.
