About the Movie
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.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The movie's rough-and-tumble look works in its favor, and the occasional doldrums allow for reflection on the obstacles, military and otherwise, the women face daily.
Fresh: Although Speed Sisters is not comprehensive, it's vital.
Fresh: Speed Sisters is a muscular, unapologetic and surprisingly feel-good documentary about the Middle East's first all-female team of racing drivers.
Fresh: It's not exactly hard-hitting stuff, and isn't meant to be, but it spins an entertaining yarn.
Touching and Entertaining.
Saw it at Atlanta Film Festival and was moved. Great doc!
Incredible film, must watch!
A moving, upbeat, incredibly engaging film. MUST WATCH. Challenging stereotypes, featuring amazing real women. If there is one film to watch about the Middle East, watch this one. I mean who wouldn't watch a film about women car racing?!!
Thoughtful, entertaining, illuminating
The women in this story are living lives limited by their geography, family expectations, and gender (of course!). Yet they each pursue racing with as much intensity as you would expect from any man. The director and producers let the backdrop of the West Bank play out subtly, never making it the main message of the film, and yet that’s what it is. Two of the women have never been to the beach and we see them take their first visit there. As their paths converge and diverge we get a brief glimpse into their lives and their passions.
