"A ferocious and unapologetic group of young women of color committed to confronting racism and violence, and demanding safe spaces for women. "

"Incisively personal and intimate.. . The Ovas have staked their place in the riot grrrl lineage and are direct descendents fo the feminist and Chicano movements of the '60s and 70's."
- The Hollywood Reporter

The Women's Marches were a tremendous success as millions from diverse ethnic, racial, religious, and economic backgrounds j oined together under one banner to address injustice and the importance of feminism. The award-winning film, OVARIAN PSYCOS  will inspire, challenge, educate and help us to continue the important dialogues we all need to have about injustice, racism and community.

Bicycles? Check. Bandanas? Check. The Ovarian Psycos gear up and ride out into the night, fanning out in pairs of two, four, and six. In constant motion, cruising up and down the storied streets of Boyle Heights, East Los Angeles, and Lincoln Heights, they call out to new riders to join them in a journey through the neighborhood. "Whose streets? Our streets!"  Since forming in the summer of 2011 by activist, poet M.C., and single mother, Xela de la X, the Ova's have made it their mission to cycle for the purpose of healing, reclaiming their neighborhoods, and creating safer streets for women on the Eastside. At first only attracting a few local women, over the past few years the Ovarian Psycos have inspired a ferocious and unapologetic crowd of local heroines who are a visible force along the barrios and boulevards of Los Angeles. The film  OVARIAN PSYCOS (Joanna Sokolowski, Kate Trumbull-LaValle) rides along with them, exploring the impact of the group's brand of feminism on neighborhood women and communities as they confront injustice, racism, and violence.
