| Bravery of a Poetess
I thoroughly enjoyed this personal look into this lovely Saudi poetess who, with simple words, caused a huge uproar and showed extreme bravery in a culture where women should not be seen nor heard. In addition to the actual contest, this documentary reviews the short history of the area, a look into the religion through the eyes of a regular mother and a tiny glimpse into the lives of women in the country.
