Saudi women trailblaze into world of cinema

date

22-Oct-2016

Jeddah: When Bushra Al Andijani was a young girl she watched on television a pair of star-crossed lovers jump from the stern of a big boat into cinematic history.


“Jack”, the lead character, didn’t survive the icy Atlantic, but “Titanic” gave birth to Al Andijani’s lifelong dream to create something out of nothing.


“Since I was little and saw “Titanic” I was really moved that everything looked so real,” Al Andijani told Gulf News. “I want to create something realistic like in “Avatar” or “Lord of the Rings.”


Al Andijani will be among the Class of 2017 to graduate in the spring with a Bachelor’s degree in studies of visual and digital production from the Jeddah-based all-women’s Effat University in Saudi Arabia. She belongs to an exclusive membership: the first generation of Saudi university-trained female filmmakers.
