Event Details

SISTER ARE YOU PSYCO? We are so excited to present this Dallas screening of a documentary about the Ovarian Psycos, a [email protected] womyn of color bicycle brigade based in East Los Angeles, followed by a skype Q&A with directors Kate Trumbull-LaValle and Joanna Sokolowski.

Doors open at 8:30pm. Screening begins at 9:00pm. Q&A at 10:30pm. $10 suggested donation, no one turned away for lack of funds. Funds collected in excess of film and venue fees will be split between a donation to the Ovarian Psycos and the creation of a microgrant to support DFW-based work by women of color addressing the topics of displacement, gender and sexuality, and/or transportation justice.

“Riding at night through the dangerous streets of Eastside Los Angeles, the Ovarian Psycos use 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 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.”
