Once a week, a group of migrant women from Southeast Amsterdam meet in a gymnasium to learn how to cycle. Supervising their bicycle course is a Ghanaian woman nicknamed ‘Mama Agatha’. Over the summer, this community mother gives the ladies from China, Pakistan and Suriname the confidence to get behind the two wheels for the first time.
USA 2016 72min.
Dir. Joanna Sokolowski and Kate Trumbull-LaValle
Riding at night through the dangerous streets of Eastside, Los Angeles, the Ovarian Psycos use their bicycles 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 the group as they confront injustice, racism, and violence, and take back their streets one ride at a time.
