Cinema club presents: Wadjda

Join us on Sunday for a great movie and lots of popcorn. This month, we are screening "Wadjda" (directed by Haifaa Al-Mansour, 1hr 38min, Saudi Arabia).

About the film: 
Wadjda is a movie of firsts. This first feature film shot entirely in Saudi Arabia is the story of a young girl living in a suburb of Riyadh determined to raise enough money to buy a bike in a society that sees bicycles as dangerous to a girl's virtue. Even more impressive, Wadjda is the first feature film made by a female Saudi filmmaker. In a country where cinemas are banned and women cannot drive or vote, writer- director Haifaa Al Mansour has broken many barriers with her new film.

The movie will be screened with English subtitles. The doors open at 6 pm, the movie starts at around 6:30 pm. Snacks and drinks will be served. The admission is free, but donations are more than welcome. Come to Trampoline House and bring your friends!

Place & Time: Trampoline House (Multizone), every last Sunday of the month 6–9 pm.
