Dear Friends of Palestine Museum US,

March 8th is International Women’s Day and the Palestine Museum US is observing the occasion by screening the film “Speed Sisters,” directed by Amber Fares. 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.  The film director will participate in the post-screening Q&A discussions with the audience.

Zoom registration (HERE) is required. Screening is on Monday, March 8, 12:00 Noon US ET; 7:00 PM Palestine Time. You can watch the film trailer by clicking here.

Today (12:00 Noon US ET), we are hosting the book launch for the Betunia/Ramallah-based Palestinian artist Mohamed Khalil. This is a dual-language event with simultaneous Arabic/English translation through the zoom platform. You can register for this free event here. Khalil’s new book is available for sale from the Museum’s online bookshop and can be ordered here.

Your support of our programming is much appreciated. Please click here to make a donation to the Museum.
