About Wadjda

      The award winning film Wadjda is a story of a 10-year-old teen living in the capital of Saudi Arabia, Riyadh.  Living in a conservative world, the light spirited Wadjada finds herself fighting with her friend Abdullah, a neighborhood boy she shouldn't be playing with, when she sees a beautiful green bicycle for sale.  She wants the bicycle so badly so she can beat Abdullah in a race.  The only problem is that her mother won't allow it, afraid of what her community might think seeing that bicycles are a danger to a girl's virtue.  Being the brave girl she is, Wadjda decides on trying to raise the money on her own.

     You are invited to a free screening of this film with an introduction and discussion led by Batool Mohanned, a graduate student at WKU. Snacks will be provided. 6:00 - 9:00pm.
