93 Queen Film Screening

"Forget Supergirl and Wonder Woman. To see a real female superhero in action, check out Paula Eiselt's documentary." - The Hollywood Reporter. 93 Queen is set in the Hasidic enclave of Borough Park, Brooklyn, where EMS corps have long been the province of men. Though the neighborhood is home to the largest volunteer ambulance corps in the world known as Hatzolah, that organization has steadfastly banned women from its ranks. Now an engaging cast of tenacious Hasidic women are risking their reputations by taking matters into their own hands to provide dignified emergency medical care to the Hasidic women and girls of Borough Park. This screening is made possible by a generous grant from the Littauer Foundation, and is a collaborative effort by Hillel at Ithaca College, the Ithaca College Library, and the Jewish Studies Department of Ithaca College.
