Coming Soon

Set in the Hasidic enclave of Borough Park, Brooklyn, the documentary 93Queen follows Rachel “Ruchie” Freier, a no-nonsense 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 New York City. Though Borough Park 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. With unprecedented and exclusive access, 93Queen follows the formation and launch of Ezras Nashim through its first year on the ground. The film observes the highs—and the lows—of creating an organization against incredible odds, as a group of empowered women struggle to change their own community from within. (Partially subtitled)
