Here’s a little bit of Girl Power to start your day. The new film Speed Sisters is about ”The Middle East’s first all-women motor racing team… [taking] on the street car racing circuit of the occupied West Bank, Palestine.” Badass right?!
I just watched the IndieGoGo trailer (below) and I love these ladies. The film’s fiscal sponsor is
being produced distributed by Women Make Movies, allowing contributions to the film to be tax-deductible in the US. WMM is a non-profit organization who’s goal is to “address the under representation and misrepresentation of women in the media industry… Women Make Movies is a multicultural, multiracial, non-profit media arts organization which facilitates the production, promotion, distribution and exhibition of independent films and videotapes by and about women.” A worthy cause indeed.
Support the film, and spread the word about these awesome women making history in Palestine.
UPDATE: The film is actually being produced by Bungalow Town Films. Speed Sisters is a member of Women Make Movie’s production assistance program and they are the partner for the Indiegogo fundraising campaign.
