June 24, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - 11:30 pm

“A spirited, crowd-pleasing portrait.” – Indiewire

The Peace Region Independent Media Arts Association and Grande Prairie Live Theatre present the SPEED SISTERS. Directed and produced by a former Grande Prairian, Amber Fares, this documentary follows the first all-woman Middle East car racing team.

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.

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

Director Amber Fares grew up in Grande Prairie. She invites her GP friends and everyone in the audience to stay after the screening for an interesting question and answer session.
