Saturday May 9 @ Noon at Metro Cinema
Don’t miss this thrilling film about a group of odd-defying, stereotype destroying female race car drivers in the Middle East. We’re very excited to welcome filmmaker Amber Fares, who will be joining us for this screening!
Despite restrictions on movement, a motor racing scene has emerged in the West Bank. The races offer a release from the pressures and uncertainties of life under military occupation. The spirited competition between cities brings spectators out in the thousands, lining rooftops and leaning over barricades to snap photos of their favorite drivers and to catch their final times on the scoreboard.
Brought together by a common desire to live life on their own terms, five determined women have joined the ranks of dozens of male drivers — competing against each other for the title, for bragging rights for their hometown, and to prove that women can compete head on with the guys.
