For many Americans, getting a driver’s license is a mundane rite of passage. But for women in Saudi Arabia, who were only allowed to drive legally starting in June 2018, it’s a critical step along the road to independence. Cameras document this change with a rarely-seen look inside the Kingdom and unprecedented access to The Saudi Women’s Driving School, the largest such complex in the world.

Join us for a Q&A with producers Fiona Stourton and Nick London after the screening!

We will be going out to eat afterwards and choose where to go as a group.
