Maryam - Den Perfekte Kandidat

Maryam is an ambitious young doctor working in a small town clinic in Saudi Arabia. Despite her qualifications, she has to earn the respect of male colleagues and acceptance from her patients every day. After Maryam is prevented from traveling to Dubai in search of a better job, a bureaucratic mixup leads her to stumble on the application for her local city elections and she decides to run. With her musician father away on tour playing the first public concerts allowed in the Kingdom in decades, Maryam enlists her two younger sisters to begin fundraising and planning campaign events. While they face the restriction of women’s traditional roles in the Kingdom at every turn, Maryam’s audacious candidacy starts to build momentum and challenges her conservative community. A tight race emerges between Maryam and her male opponent, as Maryam and her family mobilise their determination and creativity to move their traditional society forward.Mere information følger…

En kamp mellem tradition og forandring

" ’The Perfect Candidate’ har måske en velkendt formel, men indholdet er nyt. Filmen er nemlig instrueret af den Saudi arabiske instruktør Haifaa Al-Mansour, der tidligere har stået bag ’Wadjda’, der var den første Saudi Arabiske film instrueret af en kvinde. ’The Perfect Candidate’ handler om Maryam, en kvindelig læge der ved et tilfælde bliver involveret i politik. Filmen giver et unikt indblik i et moderne Saudi Arabien, hvor tradition og forandring kæmper om landets fremtidige udvikling, og den laver et stærkt argument for, at selvom der er sket mange forandring i Saudi Arabien de seneste år, så er det ikke nok.
