Try googling the term Palestine or Palestinian — you’ll find lots of history, geography, and politics.

But what about race car drivers? Or female, Palestinian race car drivers?
Pretty sure it will not show up. But it is the subject of a new documentary,1532078_10153145050924610_5465236953600719301_n
called Speed Sisters.

Speed Sisters is a personal, in-depth look at five Palestinian women and their newfound fame as competitive car racers. It follows them toward their goal of competing in the championships in Jordan… and beyond. It’s directed by the award-winning Canadian filmmaker Amber Fares and it opens in Toronto next Friday.

I spoke with Amber by telephone.
