I decided to keep the majority of the narrative confined to indoor locations, adding to the claustrophobic feel of Precious’ entrapment, but it also revealing of the nature of Saudi society in many ways. People are very much always indoors, for 2 main reasons. Firstly, families prefer their privacy and are not keen on showing each other off to one another in public, which is also obviously demonstrated in their usage of the Niqab. Secondly, it is extremely hot for the majority of the year, so people are either in their homes, gather at their friends’ homes, cafes, or malls.
