Speed Sisters

Meet the first all-woman race car driving team in the Middle East!

*Rokken 23. november*


Amber Fares / UK / 2015

Premiered at Hot Docs in 2015, played at Sheffield Doc/Fest, CPH/DOX and more. 

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.


This is the last Doc Lounge of this semester, and we know people are busy with their exams, so we will keep it short this time.
After the film we will screen a video greeting from the director, Amber Fares, with a short Q&A. After it is posible to try the chosen interactive documentary of the evening.

Hope to see y'all!
