Women are taking to the streets of East L.A. On two wheels. OVARIAN PSYCOS explores a women-only cycling group, a safe haven for the self-proclaimed runaway, the throwaway, the at-risk youth-turned-adult. Oppressed by tragedies of their childhood, impoverished upbringings, and violent city streets, these young Latinas and other women of color seek a source of support from fearless female leaders brave enough to raise their voices. The growing bicycling brigade quickly evolves from an outlet for healing to a much larger platform capable of educating the community about the violence and social struggles its young women face. Despite heavy criticism for their against-the-grain tactics, these women refuse to let their message be silenced and unabashedly wear their fallopian tube emblems proudly as signs of their newfound empowerment. Whether it is a growing love of cycling, the inevitable fears of motherhood, or the confidence to pursue a future of new possibilities, each woman slowly reveals her worth to the most important Ova of the group—herself. (In English and Spanish with subtitles) —A.B.
