Ovarian Psycos, a new documentary featuring a group of women and gender-nonconforming bicyclists from Los Angeles’ east side, hits Minneapolis this weekend. The film follows the members of the Ovarian Psycos — who are mostly of Latin American descent and from other communities of color — as they overcome personal obstacles and fight against injustice, racism, and violence. Directed and produced by Joanna Sokolowski and Kate Trumbull-LaValle, the film premiered last year at SXSW, and recently aired on PBS. This screening, with a discussion afterward, will be hosted by CTUL, an immigrant workers’ rights group, and will serve as a fundraiser for Ovarian Psycos and the local Grease Rag Bike Wrench, an organization that supports women, transgender, and femme cyclists.
