As
“mOOn Over tOwns mOOn
whisper”,
we open the courtyard again this year to share our friendship and love for films during summer nights. We screen bold and fearless racing girls on Friday night, four short video works of artists who undertake journeys to find mythical, pointless, missing and everlasting stories on Saturday. On Sunday, Moons of Cavia will end with a classic underground feature film. Afterwards the moon won’t really disappear, yet it might appear to grow
“SLoWLY SPRoUTING SPIR
IT”*.

SPEED SISTERS
Amber Fares | 2015 | 78' | EN subs

Despite a tangle of roadblocks and checkpoints, a thriving street car racing scene has emerged in the Palestinian West Bank. The races, held at improvised tracks, offer a release from the pressures and uncertainties of life under Israeli military occupation. Five determined and passionate women – Marah, Betty, Noor, Mona and Maysoon – have joined this scene and are the first all-women race car driving team in the Middle East. The documentary shows them navigating their way through the men's world of car racing, but also gives an intimate look at their personal lives and their families.
