In the heart of Hasidic Judaism in Brooklyn, the first ever all-women EMT corps of Ezras Nashim (“women helping women”) pushes the edges of strict gender norms within this conservative religious sect. Bold, inspired and controversial, 93 Queen offers an intimate view into the marrow of this usually private and veiled community, bearing witness to the tension between progress and tradition and candidly re-defining the modern scope of feminism. 90 min. Note that evening prices apply.
Screened as part of the 22nd Annual Maine Jewish Film Festival!
