"WADJDA is a 10-year-old girl living in a suburb of Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia. Although she lives in a conservative world, Wadjda is fun loving, entrepreneurial and always pushing the boundaries of what she can get away with. After a fight with her friend Abdullah, a neighborhood boy she shouldn't be playing with, Wadjda sees a beautiful green bicycle for sale. She wants the bicycle desperately so that she can beat Abdullah in a race. But Wadjda's mother won't allow it, fearing repercussions from a society that sees bicycles as dangerous to a girl's virtue. So Wadjda decides to try and raise the money herself. At first, Wadjda's mother is too preoccupied with convincing her husband not to take a second wife to realize what's going on. And soon enough Wadjda's plans are thwarted when she is caught running various schemes at school. Just as she is losing hope of raising enough money, she hears of a cash prize for a Koran recitation competition at her school". IMDB

Mary Shelley( Visual )

The real-life story of Mary Shelley, and the creation of her immortal monster, is nearly as fantastical as her fiction. Raised by a renowned philosopher father in eighteenth-century London, Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin is a teenage dreamer determined to make her mark on the world, when she meets the dashing and brilliant poet Percy Shelley. So begins a torrid, bohemian love affair marked by both passion and personal tragedy that will transform Mary and fuel the writing of her Gothic masterwork

She desperately wants a bicycle so that she can race her friend Abdullah, even though it is considered improper for girls to ride bikes. Wadjda earns money for her dream bike by selling homemade bracelets and mixtapes of banned music to her classmates. But after she's caught, she's forced to turn over a new leaf (sort of), or risk expulsion from school. Still, Wadjda keeps scheming, and with the bicycle so closely in her sights, she will stop at nothing to get what she wants

Arabia Saudita, in una scuola rigorosamente solo femminile Wadjda lotta per non soffocare i propri desideri di libertà. In particolare uno di questi riguarda l'acquisto di una bicicletta verde, con la quale potrà essere alla pari del bambino con cui gioca dopo la scuola. La sua famiglia non può permettersela e di certo non vuole che si faccia vedere su un oggetto tradizionalmente riservato agli uomini, così Wadjda comincia a cercare i soldi per conto proprio rendendosi conto ben presto che quasi tutti i metodi per farlo le sono proibiti. L'unica è partecipare ad una gara di Corano della scuola (lei che non eccelle nelle materie religiose), il cui primo premio è in denaro. (Mymovies)

Wadjda est une adolescente saoudienne de douze ans, fille unique d'une famille aisée à l'esprit conservateur. Débordante de vie, elle peut à la maison écouter du rock, porter jean et Converse, mais pour ce qui est de l'extérieur, elle peine à obéir aux principes qu'on lui inculque, surtout ceux de l'école coranique qu'elle fréquente et qui veille avec grande sévérité à la bonne éducation des filles. Aimant jouer avec les camarades garçons de son quartier, elle n'a qu'un seul rêve: avoir comme eux un vélo. Mais faire du vélo est une activité déshonorante pour une fille et sa mère lui refuse cet achat. Qu'à cela ne tienne, Wadjda décide de s'inscrire au concours de récitation coranique organisé par son école, pour gagner la somme qui lui permettra d'obtenir ce qu'elle veut. Au-delà du portrait sympathique de cette ado déterminée, dont le jugement sur la société qui l'entoure commence à s'éveiller, le film met en scène de multiples facettes de l'existence des femmes en Arabie saoudite: les règles de port du voile, l'interdiction d'être vue par les hommes, l'apprentissage du Coran, les mariages précoces, la soumission totale à son mari, la souffrance occasionnée par la bigamie... Un documentaire de la même réalisatrice est proposé en bonus, qui interview des femmes de toutes opinions sur les règles qui cadrent leur vie et sur l'évolution récente de la condition des femmes, simple et authentique, il mérite vraiment d'être visionné. Bonus: Women without shadows , Making of , Bande-annonce

Den Grønne sykkelen( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 in Arabic and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wadjda er ei nysgjerrig og uredd jente på ti år. Hun drømmer om en grønn sykkel, men i Saudi-Arabia, hvor Wadjda bor, er det ikke tillatt for jenter å sykle i gatene. Mens moren hennes er opptatt med å overbevise faren om ikke å finne seg en kone nummer to, prøver Wadjda å skaffe penger til å kjøpe sykkelen selv. Hun melder seg derfor på i en konkurranse i Koran-resitasjon der førsteprisen er en pengesum, noe som overrasker lærerne hennes. "Den grønne sykkelen" er en sjarmerende og engasjerende fortelling om ei tøff jente som trosser samfunnets regler for å følge sin egen vei. Filmen fikk terningkast 4-5 i norske aviser
