Wadjda

Today we walked to Eden Court to see the film “Wadjda.”

“Wadjda is a 10-year-old girl living in a suburb of Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia. Although she lives in a conservative world, Wadjda is fun-loving girl who always pushes the boundaries of what she can get away with. After a fight with her friend Abdullah, a neighborhood boy she shouldn’t be playing with, Wadjda sees a beautiful green bicycle for sale. She wants the bicycle desperately so that she can beat Abdullah in a race. But Wadjda’s mother won’t allow it, so Wadjda decides to try and raise the money herself.”

We thoroughly enjoyed the film and will be discussing some of the issues that emerged tomorrow.
