7:00pm
  Arabic Film Night  
(Music/Theatre/Dance)

The film portrays the predicament of 11 year old Wadjda, a Saudi Arabian girl who loves riding bikes, but who must deal with the social taboos associated with riding a bike as a female. Wadjda must also face the challenge of raising the funds necessary to purchase the bike of her choice. We accompany the resilient and resourceful Wadjda, as she perseveres at making her dream come true. Directed by female director Haifaa al-Mansour, the film artfullly elucidates Arab girls and women's savvy navigation of cultural norms and their empowerment in challenging some of these norms from within the fabric of their society.
