 Ovarian Psycos


Free screening of Ovarian Psycos

Special guests: Directors Joanna Sokolowski and Kate Trumbull-LaValle

When: Tuesday, April 11 at 7:30pm

Where: University Theatre (UT-108)

In this 2016 documentary, the Ovarian Psycos ride at night through the dangerous streets of Eastside Los Angeles, using their bikes 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; 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.

Event organized by Prof. Helen Hood Scheer and funded by a Visiting Fellows Grant from the CSU Entertainment Alliance.
