SAU/GER | 2019 |dir. Haifaa al-Mansour, with Mila Al Zahrani, Nora Al Awadh, Dae Al Hilali

Haifaa al-Mansour (Wadjda), the first Saudi woman to direct a feature film, returns with another salute to the indomitable female spirit, as Dr. Maryam, an overworked medic at an under-resourced clinic, decides to run for a seat on the municipal council. The Perfect Candidate brilliantly exposes the tensions, within Saudi Arabia, of a place where a certain modernity rubs up against a seemingly entrenched conservatism, especially for women.
