Haifaa Al-Mansour

Haifaa Al-Mansour is Saudi Arabia’s first female filmmaker and is regarded as one of the most significant figures in cinema in the Kingdom. She studied Literature at the American University in Cairo and completed a Master’s degree in Directing and Film Studies at the University of Sydney.

The success of her three short films, her award-winning documentary ‘Women Without Shadows,’ (2005) and her first feature-length film ‘Wadjda’ (2012) influenced a new wave of Saudi filmmakers and made the issue of opening cinemas in the Kingdom a front-page discussion.

Through her films and her work in television and print media, Al-Mansour is well known for penetrating the wall of silence surrounding the lives of Saudi women.
