This fast-paced and exciting documentary follows a group of five women who, as the ‘Speed Sisters’, have together conquered the intensely macho world of Palestinian street racing. Remarkable for its level of access, the film follows the women and their high-octane experiences on the track, as well as their fraught home lives against the backdrop of a tumultuous region that is full of unresolved conflicts and contradictions. At once an intimate study of five extraordinary women and a wider commentary on their socio-political context, Speed Sisters is thoroughly compelling.
