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.
Thursday, April 26, 2018
The screening and discussion will take place at The Miniplex at Richards’ Goat
401 I Street, Arcata, CA 95521
