Q&A with director PAULA EISELT and the film’s subject RACHEL “RUCHIE” FREIER

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER — Forget Supergirl and Wonder Woman. To see a real female superhero in action, check out Paula Eiselt’s documentary concerning the creation of an all-female, Hasidic EMT corps.

Set in the Hasidic enclave of Borough Park, Brooklyn, 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. With unprecedented – and insider – access, 93QUEEN 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.
