„Wadjda“ (Saudi Arabia)

A country where public cinemas are illegal and women are oppressed seems an unlikely place for a female-directed, Oscar-worthy film. But Saudi Arabia in 2012 produced just that. Haifaa Mansour’s “Wadjda” is a heartfelt, coming-of-age story of a young girl testing the boundaries of her conservative Muslim society as she focuses her energies on owning and riding a gleaming, green bicycle. Her mother is horrified at the idea and forbids her from riding it. In a society where women are not yet allowed to drive, the bike would damage both the girl’s reputation and her virtue.
