Set in the Hasidic enclave of Borough Park, Brooklyn, 93QUEEN follows a group of tenacious Hasidic women who are smashing the patriarchy in their community by creating the first all-female volunteer ambulance corps in New York City.
With unprecedented — and insider — access, 93QUEEN offers up a unique portrayal of a group of empowered women who are taking matters into their own hands to change their own community from within.
"As intriguing a character study as it is a portrait of the ambulance service itself, 93Queen is a fierce little film which turns one myth on its head: that the work of realising human rights is for the constitutionally delicate."
"A film about the triumphant baby-steps march towards progress in Brooklyn's Orthodox Jewish community"
"Without denying that these women face discrimination in reaching their goal, the movie shows how its subjects are able to find ways to combine strict observance and progress."
