Haiffa Al-Mansour

Hosted by

Haiffa Al-Mansour is a Saudi Arabian female filmmaker -- a surprising feat in a country that has banned movie theaters and has restrictive views of women. Al-Mansour's Wadjda is not only the first film to be entirely shot in Saudi Arabia, it's become that country's first entry for the Best Foreign Language Oscar. Al-Mansour talks about her unlikely story of becoming a filmmaker and making Wadjda.
