Baraqah Meets Baraqah is a classic 'boys meets girl' story transposed to a refreshing and challenging context. It proposes a reflection on freedom and the role of the women in Saudi society, on the expression of self in spite of cultural impositions. The film uses humour and charm to render its political message about youth seeking freedom accessible. Tied with Those Who Jump (2016).
