-New documentary "The Speed Sisters" are the first ever all-woman racing team in the Middle East – and now a documentary charting their success (backed by Madonna) is hitting the big screen
A true feminist icon, madonna is not all talk. She is financing the first documentary about a middle eastern all-woman racing team.
"A car doesn't know if you are a woman or a man!" Betty says. "I don't think we need to be tomboys just because we like cars. We need to be ourselves."
The director is Amber Fares.
- The documentary has been in the works for over five years – but suffered huge delays due to a lack of funding and mobility - not to mention being shot at by Israeli soldiers.
-Madonna spotted the trailer online in 2013, and donated $10,000 to help finance its release, production finally kicked off.
