Girls on Film Club #1: Wadjda


We’ve teamed up with the wonderful women of Shoreditch Sisters WI to create Girls on Film Club, a monthly screening club that takes place on a Monday every month at The Hoxton Hotel in Shoreditch.



Our first event is on Monday 20th January and will be a screening of Haifaa Al-Mansour’s beautifully subversive film Wadjda, which had its UK premier at our International Women’s Day Gala event last year.

Come and join us for an evening of wine, pop-corn and conversation. The screening will be followed by a special discussion with an industry expert.

Film Synopsis:
The first ever feature from Saudi Arabia, this inspiring and gently subversive film won the Satyajit Ray Foundation Award for 2013. Wadjda’s parents won’t buy her a bicycle, so she determines to raise the money herself. And with her mother distracted by her husband’s plans for a second wife, she has a chance.

Dir Haifaa Al Mansour, Saudi Arabia / Germany, 2012, 93 min
