GBBW Movie Night: Ovarian Psycos

Join us for our very first virtual movie night to celebrate Go By Bike Week! We are screening Kate Trumbull-LaValle and Johanna Sokolowski’s 2016 documentary Ovarian Psycos. 

Ovarian Psycos (2016) is about a new generation of fierce, unapologetic and feminist women of color from the Eastside of Los Angeles who confront injustice, build community, and redefine identity through a raucous, irreverently named bicycle crew: The Ovarian Psycos Cycle Brigade.
