The Ovarian Psycos Bicycle Brigade
The Ovarian Psycos are an all women of color bicycling brigade cycling for the purpose of healing their communities physically, emotionally and spiritually by addressing pertinent issues. They envision a world where women are change agents who create and maintain holistic health in themselves and their respective communities for present and future generations.
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.
