“Speed Sisters” is a documentary being shown free by the Mary B. Martin School of the Arts. The film focuses is on Middle-Eastern race car drivers. These women compete in an all-women race car competition called Speed Sisters, but they have made their way into the male-dominated Palestinian street races. Their determination and ambition, combined with the support from their families, have brought a new perspective to the Middle East. Rather than re-watching Hollywood’s “Fast and Furious” movies, check out “Speed Sisters.” The film will be shown April 10 at 7 p.m. in the D.P. Culp University Center auditorium.
