Speed Sisters :– Watch Speed Sisters full movie on Project Free Tv,The acrylic nails aren’t the first thing you notice, but they’re definitely in the mix, alongside hot dust, hot air, thick engine oil, makeshift tracks, customised street cars, puffy one-piece racing suits. Oh yes, and women: Palestinian women, some of whom wear amazing nail art.Meet the world’s first all-female racing-car driving team from occupied Palestine. There’s Maysoon Jayyusi, the team’s 38-year-old manager, from Jerusalem, who says her love for racing-car driving came from the frustration of being stuck in the West Bank’s constant traffic jams and checkpoints; Mona Ali, 29, from Ramallah, who was one of the first female racers in Palestine; Marah Zahalka, 23, who was a racing champion at 19; Noor Dauod, 25, from Jerusalem, who is determinedly persistent, if not always successful on the race track; and finally Betty Saadeh, 35, the only member who comes from a wealthy family of racers in Bethlehem.The five women are the focus of Amber Fares’ feature-length documentary, Speed Sisters, which recently played to full houses at an international documentary festival in Sheffield. It’s a full-throttle but sensitive take on the adventures this female team face as they take on all the stereotypes that confront them as they try to break into a male-dominated sport within a conservative (relatively speaking – this isn’t Saudi Arabia) society.“I was racing cars when I was a kid, learning how to do it, speeding with the boys from school,” says Ali. When she was 16 and too young to have a licence, she would borrow her sister’s car and race through Ramallah by night, when the streets were deserted. She was the first woman to join the fledgling Palestinian racing federation in 2005. “At first, the boys wouldn’t accept me; they didn’t want to race with me,” she says. “But I told them I’d carry on racing whether they liked it or not.” And so she did. As the other women joined the federation in the years that followed, they soon became a regular fixture on Palestine’s increasingly popular car-racing circuit – the “circuit” being market squares and airstrips repurposed for weekend races.
