Description

WADJDA

Director: Haifaa Al-Mansour   Saudi Arabia, 2012, 98 minutes; Arabic with subtitles; rated G

SAUDIA ARABIA’S SUBMISSION FOR THE OSCAR FOR BEST FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM

WINNER! MOST POPULAR FIRST FEATURE! –Vancouver Film Festival

Wadjda is reportedly the first film to be made entirely within Saudi Arabia, and it's a film by a first-time female filmmaker, Haifaa Al-Mansour. Most remarkably of all, it's one of the best films of the year. The title refers to its central character, played by 12-year-old actress Waad Mohammed. Wadjda is rebellious; she makes mixtapes of forbidden music, wears battered Converse to her school. More than anything else, she wants a bike to race her friend Abdullah, but the price seems out of reach. Wadjda is one of the most memorable on-screen protagonists in some time. Essentially fearless, smarter than everyone else around her, and conning her way around Riyadh, it's the showcase of a terrific performance. There's enormous warmth and comedy, and a fine observational eye of a world that's pretty alien to Western audiences, which makes it consistently fascinating.  –indieWire
