Speed Sisters

Life on the West Bank is tough, but despite a tangle of roadblocks and checkpoints, a thriving street car-racing scene has emerged. And at the heart of it is a group of five brave, bold and fearless women, the Speed Sisters, the first all-women racing car drivers 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 centre of the gritty, male-dominated Palestinian racing world. Weaving together their lives on and off the track, SPEED SISTERS, is an award-winning, feature documentary from Amber Fares. Chosen for the official selection at Hot Docs, Doc NYC and Sheffield Doc Fest it comes to UK cinemas and on-demand on 25 March 2016 courtesy of Dogwoof.

Offering a release from the pressures and uncertainties of life under military occupation, the races take place at improvised tracks - a vegetable market, an old helicopter pad, a security academy. The fanfare and rivalry between cities brings spectators out in droves, lining rooftops and leaning over barricades to snap photos of their favourite drivers and to catch final times on the scoreboard.

Brought together by a common desire to live life on their own terms, five determined women - Marah, Betty, Noor, Mona and Maysoon - have joined the ranks of dozens of male drivers, competing against each other for the title, and to prove that women can go head to head with the guys.

With a character-driven narrative, tyre-screeching racing scenes and a dynamic Middle Eastern indie music soundtrack, SPEED SISTERS offers a surprising look into what it takes to go further and faster than anyone thought you could.
