Short Films: “Right to Drive” - 70s
This dramatic short film celebrates Saudi Arabian women winning the hard-fought right to hit the road. Cryptic visuals liken this milestone to a hawk being allowed to fly, as a pair cross the desert and before celebrating with a wild (and legal) joyride. Meanwhile, director Sean Thonson pairs a chugging soundtrack with rapid cuts to increase the piece's stirring feel.
