Meet the first all-female racing team in the middle east. The “Speed Sisters” explores the gritty, male-dominated Palestinian street car-racing scene. The film breaks down stereotypes about Palestinian women.
Finding places to practice is difficult, with the team forced to train in a car park located next to an Israeli detention centre. Simply getting around is a logistical nightmare, with Israel’s illegal apartheid wall and military checkpoints everywhere.
Documentary. 78 minutes. Director: Amber Fares. Admission free. Contributions welcome.
