ARCATA– As part of the Let’s Talk About the Middle East film and discussion series, Humboldt State University History professor Dr. Leena Dallasheh hosts a screening of Wadjda (2012, Saudi Arabia).  In the first feature film shot entirely in Saudi Arabia, and the first feature film made by a female Saudi filmmaker, we follow Wadjda, a young Saudi girl, will go to great lengths to buy a green bicycle. Her goal challenges many societal restrictions. Yet, she insists and enters a Qur’an-reciting contest to raise the money for her dream.  The screening and discussion will take place at The Miniplex at Richards’ Goat 401 I Street, Arcata, CA 95521   For more information, go to https://www.facebook.com/events/2072049816373438/ or contact Leena Dallasheh, Project Director at ld1145@humboldt.edu or 707-826-5937 This program is part of a series supported by California Humanities through an Humanities for All Quick Grant.
