ABOUT THE FILMS:

"Wadjda"
Saudi Arabia. 2013. Director: Haifaa al Mansour*
*This film is the first female directed full-length feature film to come out of Saudi Arabia. It was nominated for Best Foreign Film at the 2014 BAFTA Awards and was Saudi Arabia's official submission for the 2014 Academy Awards Best Foreign Film category.

SYNOPSIS: Wadjda is a 10-year-old girl living in a suburb of Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia. Although she lives in a conservative world, Wadjda is fun-loving, entrepreneurial and always pushing the boundaries of what she can get away with. After a fight with her friend Abdullah, a neighborhood boy she shouldn't be playing with, Wadjda sees a beautiful green bicycle for sale. She wants the bicycle desperately so that she can beat Abdullah in a race. But Wadjda's mother won't allow it, fearing repercussions from a society that sees bicycles as dangerous to a girl's virtue. So Wadjda decides to try and raise the money herself. WATCH THE TRAILER: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3koigluYOH0

SYNOPSIS: Jitensha is a story about a young man struggling to find meaning in life. Alone and without work, the young man's bicycle begins to disappear, piece by piece. He receives a letter from the thief that sends him on a journey to resurrect and reassemble his beloved possession.

ABOUT THE ARTIST:

Raphael Xavier is a Philadelphia-based multifaceted artist whose work ranges from breakdancing to music producing. We will be showcasing images from his documentary photography project, "No Bicycle Parking." Photographed over a 15 year period, Xavier collected hundreds of abandoned and stripped bikes to create a silent tableau of loss and mourning from cities around the world. His project was featured in Bike Magazine 2003, the Sweeney Art Gallery's Re-Cycle-Bike Culture exhibit in 2010, The Painted Bride Art Center in 2013 and several major online publications. In addition to his photographs, his short film about the project will be on loop during the gallery portion of the event.


WHO WE ARE:

cineSPEAK is a Philadelphia based non-profit film organization that engages diverse audiences through our independent, repertory, and foreign film programming; giving voices to the voiceless individuals and communities that are often underrepresented in mainstream cinema with a specific focus on cause-based filmmaking.

SPOKE Magazine is a new publication dedicated to cycling in Philadelphia. As a free print quarterly, SPOKE takes a deep look at the politics, infrastructure and culture of cycling as it affects ordinary Philadelphians who bike, whether they do so for work, play, commuting or exercise.
