Cinema Nairn's next film 'Wadjda' (PG) 2012
Friday 24th March 7.30pm at Nairn Community and Arts Centre.Tickets at the door.
Cinema Nairn’s first non English speaking film of 2017 is award winning Saudi film ‘Wadjda’ .
This little gem is a gently challenging look at how the pressures on young women to conform to traditional roles build up through childhood, but how adept some strong minded individuals become at sidestepping the constraints.
Wadjda is a fun loving young girl who pushes the boundaries, and longs for a green bicycle she has spied in a shop. She plans to beat her friend Abdullah in a race once she has the bike.
Naturally neither Abdullah nor the bike are likely to find favour, so Wadjda plans to find her own way to try to circumvent the traditions arrayed against her.
