Synopsis

The Speed Sisters are the first all-female racing team in the Middle East, taking on the courses traditionally ruled by men in the Palestinian car-racing scene. Set to the backdrop of the Israel-Palestine conflict, the group must be bold and fearless at every turn, from battling old-fashioned prejudices across the community to internal frictions within the team. The documentary explores their lives both on and off the track, examining their family relationships and different attitudes related to the sport they each love. Speed Sisters is an insightful, visceral viewing experience which challenges stereotypes wherever it encounters them.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
