Join us for our documentary film series on the fourth Monday of the month. Today we are partnering with the POV Community Network to screen the 2018 film "93Queen" (NR) directed by Paula Eiselt at 2:30 pm.
Run time 1 hour 30 minutes.
"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 religious women who are taking matters into their own hands to change their own community from within."
This event is a collaboration with POV, PBS' award-winning nonfiction film series. Learn more about POV here.
