Saudi Runaway

Show trailer
This year's biggest sensation is filmed in secret on an smartphone by a courageous Saudi-Arabian woman, who gambles everything on escaping before it's too late.

As a young woman in Saudi Arabia, you can look forward to a life in stifling repression. For Muna, this is an unthinkable future. Paradoxically, her only way out is to enter into an arranged marriage with a man she doesn't know – but when the full extent of her plan becomes clear to us, we are really caught off guard. The fact that she has had the courage to document her entire escape on an iPhone is almost incomprehensible. But that 'Saudi Runaway' consists entirely of her own videos is sensational. A single woman's rebellion against the ultimate patriarchal system in a film that is so intense, nerve-wracking and ultimately liberating, that you will never forget it.
