“A spirited, crowd-pleasing portrait.” – Indiewire
“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. 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.
