While Vin Diesel and co. are crushing the box office with “Furious 7,” thanks to the franchise’s increasing series of improbable mega-stunts, nothing beats the real thing. In an unlikely part of the world, an even unlikelier group of drivers are making waves with their skills behind the wheel. We have the exclusive trailer and poster for “Speed Sisters” making its International Premiere at the Hot Docs Film Festival.
Directed by Amber Fares, the documentary follows Marah, Mona, Betty, Noor —the Middle East’s first all-female race car team— and their manager Maysoon as they engage in the emerging speed racing scene that has seen contests between cities on the West Bank and drawn thousands of avid spectators despite the constant danger from the ongoing Israeli occupation.
