    Sundance Film Forward travels to Nebraska with filmmakers Amber Fares (Director, Speed Sisters) and Kristina Goolsby (Director, Tig).  In partnership with Film Streams, Film Forward visits Omaha for a series of free screenings and moderated discussions. Events taking place at the Joslyn Art Museum and Film Streams are free and open to the public.  Please refer to the schedule below for updated information.

    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. Weaving together their lives on and off the track, Speed Sisters takes you on a surprising journey into the drive to go further and faster than anyone thought you could.  

    After receiving devastating news, comedian Tig Notaro put her life together on stage in a single legendary stand-up performance. This film provides an intimate, funny and illuminating look at one woman determined to find humor, life and love in the places we all fear the most.
