Welcome Sessions + The Bike Project present WADJDA

October 2 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

£10.95

On October 2, Welcome Sessions + The Bike Project present WADJDA.

Wadjda is about an enterprising Saudi girl who signs on for her school’s Koran recitation competition as a way to raise the remaining funds she needs in order to buy the green bicycle that has captured her interest. It was the first ever feature film to have been shot entirely in Saudi Arabia, and is the debut feature by female director Haifaa Al-Monsour (Mary Shelley).

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with Jools Walker (Velocitygirl.co.uk) and The Bike Project, an initiative helping the refugee community get on two wheels.

Tickets start at £6.00. For more information, visit the Rich Mix website.

This event is part of the Welcome Presents community and is free for refugees and asylum seekers. Please email welcomepresents@gmail.com to secure a spot.
