“Brings an instinctive yet clear-eyed sympathy for these women’s remarkable story, joined with an ability to be candid about the difficulties that arose within the group and with the greater Hasidic community.” (Los Angeles Times)

“A rip-roaring ‘only in America’ success story.” (East Bay Express)

Set in Borough Park, Brooklyn, 93Queen follows a group of tenacious religious women—including the one-of-a-kind Rachel “Ruchie” Freier, a no-nonsense lawyer and mother of six—who shakes up the Hasidic “boys club” by creating Ezras Nashim, the first all-female ambulance corps in New York City. Part of what motivates them is that strict prohibitions on contact between the sexes prevent some ultra-Orthodox women from calling for medical help when it’s needed. Director Paula Eiselt’s unprecedented insider access creates a unique and inspiring portrait of a group of observant women who take matters into their own hands to change their community for the better from within. An entertaining, feel-good documentary about women taking care of women.
