Kid on a Bike: 'Wadjda' Tries to Break the Silence

"Wadjda," the first feature film shot in Saudi Arabia by the country’s first female director, Haifaa Al Mansour, gives voice to a feisty Saudi girl.

At the heart of "Wadjda" is the issue of the female voice. "Women in Saudi are always invisible but they are also silenced," says al Mansour.
