Dystopian themes have always been popular amongst mass media consumers, whether it is a setting for a novel à la Hunger Games, or the premise of widely acclaimed television shows or films.

There is no denying the public’s fascination with ‘strange’ locations or lifestyles, so different and exaggerated from their own.

Therefore, it only makes sense that the world is equally fascinated about what goes on behind the closed doors of Saudi Arabia, a nation too private for the information-hungry 21st century.

Recent developments in the Kingdom, such as the ‘honesty app’ Sarahah that took over the internet like wildfire, the government’s decision to lift restrictions on WhatsApp, Prince Salman’s plans to build beach resorts in the country where women can wear bikinis, and the recent video of a Saudi girl strolling in the desert in a skirt and cropped top, have intrigued the world even more.
