About the Film
Set in the Hasidic enclave of Borough Park, Brooklyn, 93 Queen follows a group of tenacious Hasidic women who smash 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 up a unique portrayal of a group of empowered women who are taking matters into their own hands to change their own community from within.
