Wadjda is not only the first feature film shot entirely in Saudi Arabia, it is the first feature length film made by a female Saudi director, Haifaa al-Moansaur. An enterprising Saudi girl signs on for her school’s Koran recitation competition as a way to raise the remaining funds she needs in order to buy the green bicycle that has captured her interest. Arabic (Saudi Arabia) Rated PG. One hour, 38 minutes.
