SPEED SISTERS

Dir: Amber Fares
United States / Palestine, State of / 2015 / 80mins

“A thrill-ride from beginning to end.” - The National

“An eye-opening doc that succeeds in its goal of shattering stereotypes” - The Hollywood Reporter

The Speed Sisters are the first all-woman race car driving team in the Middle East. Grabbing headlines and turning heads at improvised tracks across the West Bank, these five women have sped their way into the heart of the gritty, male-dominated Palestinian street car-racing scene. Despite a tangle of roadblocks and checkpoints, a thriving street car racing scene has emerged in the West Bank, Held at improvised tracks the races offer a release from the pressures and uncertainties of life under military occupation.

Brought together by a common desire to live life on their own terms, five determined women – Marah, Betty, Noor, Mona and Maysoon – have joined the ranks of dozens of male drivers, competing against each other for the title, for bragging rights for their hometown, and to prove that women can go head to head with the guys.
