93Queen

dir. Paula Eiselt, USA 2018, 86 min, documentary

POLISH PREMIERE.

93QUEEN follows Rachel “Ruchie” Freier, a Hasidic lawyer and mother of six who is determined to shake up the “boys club” in her community by creating the first all-female ambulance corps in NYC. Ruchie and other dogged Hasidic women are risking their reputations to provide dignified emergency medical care to the women of Borough Park. They would never call themselves feminists, but, while keeping traditions, they are going against conservative rabbis and powerful men-only ambulance corps Hatzolah.
