Fantastic story of women breaking barriers and inside view of the Palestinian situation
29 May 2015 | by philmoore-12568See all my reviews

Speed Sisters follows a group of 4 women race car drivers with their manager navigating their way through the men's world of motor racing. It goes through their struggles with racing in general (funding, track strategy, race series rulings, etc) but involves the struggles of racing in a region where freedom of movement is restricted for some and not for others. The documentary has it's share of politics within the racing team, their families and religion. It also provides a direct (and unique from North American standards) perspective on the military occupation within the country of racing. Speed Sisters invites us into the exciting and challenging lives of the racers and provides a sober look into the lives of those in a country rife with constant military intervention. Enjoyable and informative!
