FILM: 93Queen (Second Showing)
Thursday, February 11, 2021 - 7:00 PM
93Queen follows Rachel "Ruchie" Freier, a no-nonsense Hasidic lawyer and mother of six who is determined to shake up the "boys club" in her Hasidic community by creating Ezras Nashim, the first all-female ambulance corps in NYC. 93Queen 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 Ruchie and an engaging cast of dogged Hasidic women are risking their reputations-and, literally, the futures of their children-by taking matters into their own hands to provide dignified emergency medical care to the Hasidic women and girls of Borough Park.
