Outburst! and SpeakSudan, along with the generous support of our good friends over at the Toronto International Film Festival, are proud to present a screening of Wadjda, a film about a girl in Saudi Arabia wanting a bike. Wadjda is the first film by a female Saudi director, Haifaa Mansour. The film received a 2014 Oscar nomination for “Best Foreign Film”

From IMBD:
“An enterprising Saudi girl signs on for her school's Koran recitation competition as a way to raise the remaining funds she needs in order to buy the green bicycle that has captured her interest.”
