|I wanted to make this film in order to take a closer look||Driven by curiosity, I also wanted to challenge myself and get uncomfortable|
|Rakan himself does not write graffiti, but I was led to his world through the hajwalah graffiti|
I became attracted to the joyriding subculture and wanted to understand it.14
|Regulation of our social relations is gradually revealed||I decided to focus on the hajwalah writers, and very soon after that, I decided to focus on just hajwalah joyriding|
|Fearful of losing his system-monitoring night job, Rakan quits joyriding and instead, he imagines and virtually relives the hajwalah world through gaming||From far away I saw that joyriders contest space in public spaces with a quest for individual identity and fame|
Can I possibly tell a story about a joyrider, to whom my accessibility is very limited? As a Riyadh-native hoping to drive in my city one day, nothing seems more important than connecting my plight with my visible and yet marginalized male counterparts who drive in the outer-city.
