Speed Sisters — The Film is the third screening in our 3rd Annual Women's Film Series which runs Oct 4-14th. Each screening will be followed by a Q&A with the film’s director, writer, producer, and/or cast members.

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.

Weaving together their lives on and off the track, SPEED SISTERS takes you on a surprising journey into the drive to go further and faster than anyone thought you could.
