Cinema Explorations: Speed Sisters

January 28, 2017, 10:00 AM

|Recurring Event (See all)

One event on January 29, 2017 at 10:00 AM


The Speed Sisters are the first all-woman race car driving team in the Middle East. Grabbing headlines and turning heads at improvised tracks across the West Bank, these five women have sped their way into the heart of the gritty, male-dominated Palestinian street car-racing scene. Weaving together their lives on and off the track, Speed Sisters takes you on a surprising journey into the drive to go further and faster than anyone thought you could. (Unrated, 80 min.)

“An eye-opening doc that succeeds in its goal of shattering stereotypes.” — The Hollywood Reporter.

“A spirited, crowd pleasing portrait.” — Indiewire.

These screenings are part of Cinema Explorations, a venture of the Maine Film Center dedicated to fostering the voices and choices of our community of film lovers. The winter film series is programmed by a local, volunteer steering committee. Its goals are to present works of cinema from around the world that will enrich, educate and entertain filmgoers and encourage the shared experience of communal film viewing and thoughtful discussion.

Individual tickets to Cinema Explorations screenings are $8 each; a festival pass, which admits one to all 6 films, costs $30. Railroad Square Cinema punch cards, complimentary tickets, and Maine Film Center membership benefits may also be used. Bagel Mainea will provide free bagels!
