It's no secret my excitement for the release of this documentary about The Speed Sisters in Palestine. After two successful crowdfunding campaigns to produce a film about their story in 2012 and 2014, the final film about Speed Sisters Noor, Marah, Mona, Maysoon and Betty is being premiered in Toronto at Hot Docs Canadian International Film Festival on April 29 – May 2.
Click here to grab your tickets to see the film if you're in Toronto. For the rest of us, we'll wait until it becomes accessible to the rest of the world, however if you want to support these ladies racing careers and the Palestinian economy they are also selling their keffieyhs.
Watch the film teaser below.
Heleana is a force of nature. Our Editor in Chief, the founder of In Venus Veritas and The Petrolette, and a co-founder of Rising Sun Workshop. Heleana shares her love of vintage cars, riding motorcycles, and (not-so-secretly) dreams of flying planes and piloting a riva aquariva (a la Sophia Loren) very fast through the canals of Venice. Supportive and connected, community is her lifeblood, and she is as real as they come.
