Saudi Arabia Nominates Female Director's Film For Oscar
"It was a film that seemed guaranteed to enrage its homeland: the first feature from a Saudi Arabian woman director, which painted the Kingdom as an oppressive society in which women are second class citizens and girls are forbidden to laugh in public. And yet Wadjda, the critically acclaimed drama from Haifaa Al Mansour, has been selected as Saudi Arabia's official nomination for the best foreign film Oscar." The Guardian (UK) 09/16/13
