Then, Wadjda is the first-ever feature film to be shot entirely in Saudi Arabia. That’s a feat in of itself but the fact that the writer and director is a woman is even more significant. The story Haifaa al-Mansour tells is about a gregarious Saudi girl who enters a Koran-memorization contest at her school with plans to use the prize money to buy a green bicycle. Biking was, until very recently, a banned activity for women, but Wadjda is determined to go faster than she can on foot. [Broadcast Date: September 25, 2013]
