When you see Tanya Habjouqa’s photographs of cars drifting in the West Bank it takes a moment to realise the drivers are women. When I did, I flicked quickly back to the start to really understand what I was seeing.
Speed Sisters ( postcard above from the promotional material) is a short film by Amber Fares created around those women. The promo reads: “The Speed Sisters are the first all-women race car driving team in the Middle East. They’re bold. They’re fearless. And they’re tearing up tracks all over Palestine.”
Premiering at the Ajyal Youth Film Festival in Doha this week, you can find out more at: http://www.speedsisters.tv/#/story/
