CLUB #1: WADJDA
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.
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
