See the BAFTA-nominated debut feature by female director Haifaa Al-Monsour (Mary Shelley).

An enterprising Saudi girl signs on for her school’s Koran recitation competition as a way to raise the remaining funds she needs in order to buy the green bicycle that has captured her interest.

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with Jools Walker (Velocitygirl.co.uk) and The Bike Project, an initiative helping the refugee community get on two wheels.
