Haifaa Al Mansour
Haifaa Al Mansour directed short films before shifting to documentary with WOMEN WITHOUT SHADOWS (2005). WADJDA (2013), which she wrote and directed, was her feature debut. The film received its world premiere at the 2012 Venice Film Festival, screened at DIFF and was nominated for a BAFTA. It is the first feature to be shot entirely in Saudi Arabia and the first by a female Saudi director. WADJDA was Saudi Arabia’s official submission to the Academy Awards in the Best Foreign Language Film category. She recently published a novelisation of the film titled “The Green Bicycle” for Penguin Group.
