What Walaa Wants

What Walaa Wants




Genre: Documentary
Canada/Denmark, 2018, 90'
Director: Christy Garland
С: Walaa Khaled Fawzy Tanji, Latifa Abu Draa
Growing up in the Balata refugee camp while her mother is incarcerated in an Israeli prison, 15-year-old Walaa is not like other girls.


Headstrong and rebellious, she isn’t interested in finishing school or settling down with a husband. Instead, she’s determined to become one of the few women who serve with the Palestinian National Security Forces. Over five years, director Christy Garland creates a compelling and intimate coming-of-age portrait of Walaa who, despite challenging circumstances, remains fiercely committed to pursuing her dream.
