Saudi Runaway: Susanne Regina Meures Documents Woman’s Life in Saudi Arabia

Saudi Runaway from director Susanne Regina Meures uses covertly-filmed smartphone footage to document a woman’s life in Saudi Arabia and her attempt to flee the country.

The Berlin Film Festival has added the politically-charged documentary Saudi Runaway to the official line up for its Panorama sidebar.

The non-fiction feature, from first-time director Susanne Regina Meures, documents a young woman’s life under the oppressive Saudi Arabian regime. Using her smartphone, the woman secretly films her struggles, including her daring plan to flee the country.

Saudi Runaway was produced by Swiss filmmaker Christian Frei (War Photographer).
