Set in the Hasidic enclave of Borough Park, Brooklyn, the 2018 documentary 93 Queen (90 minutes, English, no subtitles) 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, 93 Queen offers a unique portrayal of a group of empowered women who are taking matters into their own hands to change their own community from within. The film was directed and produced by Paula Eiselt.
The film will be screened in person in the Museum’s Edmond J. Safra Hall. Tickets are $5 each for Museum members or $10 each for the general public. If you’re not a member, join today. If you’re already a member, log in and the member discount will be reflected in your cart.
