Meet Saudi Arabia's First Female Filmmaker
"Wadjda director Haifaa al Mansour talks to Xan Brooks about being the first Saudi Arabian woman to make a feature film. Mansour directed parts of the film from a van in order to adhere to restrictions on men and women working together. She describes how her country is changing as its artists address the conservatism of their society." The Guardian (UK) 07/16/13 (video)
