The Friday Night Flix series at Belfast Free Library, 106 High St., offer films that explore Other Cultures Through the Eyes of Their Children this month. Screenings are Fridays at 7 p.m.

The series concludes Aug. 26 with “Wadjda” (2012, Saudi Arabia/Germany/USA/United Arab Emirates/Jordan/Netherlands). The first film to be shot entirely in Saudi Arabia, “Wadjda” reflects its society through the eyes of a 10-year-old girl who gently challenges deep-rooted Saudi traditions in a determined quest to buy herself a bicycle. When everything goes against her plans, she sees one last chance in her school's Koran recitation competition. She hopes that the large first-place cash prize will allow her to realize her dream. The film is rated PG and is shown in Arabic, with subtitles.

Screenings are free, held in the air-conditioned Abbott Room. For more information, call the library at 338-3884, ext. 10.
