Wadjda - Presented By The Body Narratives

The Body Narratives presents an intimate evening of film to support the upcoming exhibition and workshops entitled “A Different Mirror” in April 2014. The event aims to introduce audiences and encourage support for the exhibition’s artists and workshops, as well as generate funding for the project.

Wadjda is a tale of a 10 –year old spirited girl, who longs to own a bike to race against her friend Abdullah. You’d have to be made of stone not to be won over by the rebellious, yet endearing heroine of the story played by 12 –year old Waad Mohammed. 

Wadjda has become renowned for being the first film to come from Saudi Arabia directed by a woman in a notably male‐dominated kingdom. The director Haifaa Al Mansour gives viewers a rare insight into the barely known country by contrasting the independent­‐minded Wadjda with the conservative setting of Riyadh society.
