Come and join CUMES as we watch the award winning film Wadjda (2012). This Saudi Arabian film was directed by Haifaa al-Mansour and is the first feature-length film made by a female Saudi director. The film follows the struggles of the a young girl in a society that refuses to grant her what she desires - a new bicycle. The film explores some of the issues that are pertinent to contemporary Saudi culture, namely, women's rights, education and feminism.

We look forward to seeing you there.
