Description

Despite restrictions on movement, a very dynamic motor racing scene has emerged in the West Bank. From this arena comes the Speed Sisters — five determined women who have joined the ranks of dozens of male drivers. Proving that women can compete head-on with the guys, the Speed Sisters are the first all-women racecar driving team in the Middle East. They’re bold. They’re fearless. And they’re tearing up tracks all over Palestine. Both intimate and action-filled, Speed Sisters captures the drive to defy all odds, leaving in its trail shattered stereotypes about gender and the Arab world.
