“A thrill ride from beginning to end”
They’re bold. They’re fearless. And they’re tearing up tracks all over Palestine. The Speed Sisters are the first allwomen racecar-driving team in the Arab world, and they refuse to slow down. 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-racing scene. Weaving together the exhilarating lives of these remarkable women on and off the track, Speed Sisters takes viewers on a fascinating and entertaining journey into the drive to go further and faster than anyone thought possible. In Arabic with English subtitles.
