Presbyterian College to host “Speed Sisters” film screening
The Southern Film Circuit at Presbyterian College will present the film, “Speed Sisters,” at 3 p.m. on Thursday, April 13, 2017 in the Harrington-Peachtree Amphitheater. The screening is free and open to the public.
Amber Fares is an award-winning documentary filmmaker and photographer. Fares’ feature film, Speed Sisters, was premiered at the Hot Docs of 2015 and it was one of the top 20 Audience Choice Awards. It also won the Audience Award at the Irish Film Institute Festival. Fares is continually expanding the story-telling approach by using personal stories that can best help the audience connect to important topics. This approach has helped people work with multiple organizations like Defence for Children International and Amnesty International.
The Speed Sisters is 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. Speed Sisters takes you on a surprising journey into the drive to go further and faster than anyone thought you could by weaving together their lives on and off the track.
