Ovarian Psycos Film Screening
Come join Earn-a-Bike and the crew at Technocopia for a screening of “Ovarian Psycos”, a film where three young misfit women find solace in an unapologetic, feminist all women of color bicycle crew. They call themselves the Ovarian Psycos Bicycle Brigade.
Riding at night through streets deemed dangerous in Eastside Los Angeles, the Ovarian Psycos use their bicycles to confront the violence in their lives. At the helm of the crew is founder Xela de la X, a single mother and poet M.C. dedicated to recruiting an unapologetic, misfit crew of women of color. The film intimately chronicles Xela as she struggles to strike a balance between her activism and nine year old daughter Yoli; street artist Andi who is estranged from her family and journeys to become a leader within the crew; and bright eyed recruit Evie, who despite poverty, and the concerns of her protective Salvadoran mother, discovers a newfound confidence.
The Ovas (members of the Ovarian Psycos Bicycle Brigade) will join us through Skype for a conversation about their experiences and will be able to answer a few questions about organizing.
Screening begins at TBD

Movie snacks will be available. We will also provide materials to make your own bandana so you will be prepared to start your own bicycle crew.
