Time: 18:45 - 20:45

Cost: £0.00

Join us for a free screening of Wadjda on Thursday 16th December, presented by Action Rayz.

The story of a young Saudi girl whose burning desire for a bicycle leads to rebellion against her societies rules for young women. A simple story I’m sure, but one with many nuances. An outstanding look into what it is to be a young Saudi girl. School, home, parents and a forbidden friendship with a young Saudi boy who she wishes to beat in a bicycle race. Cinema and TV is banned in Saudi Arabia so it is surprising this film was made at all, especially considering it was directed by a woman. I know the above may sound daunting, but it is a heart-warming tale of a bold young life, Life affirming. Do come and have a look please.

The screening will be held in the Chapter House, which is accessed externally via Priory Street.
