There have been a lack of movies, especially documentary films, to see in Pittsburgh this summer. With the Regent Square theater closed for repairs (does anyone know if/when it will reopen?), there have been even fewer options.
The 1st annual Pittsburgh Underground Film Festival #reelqPUFF is happening this weekend and has a line up of several interesting documentaries.
The film festival starts on Friday with a screening of the documentary Ovarian Psycos. Ovarian Psycos is a bicycle brigade in Los Angeles that supports women of color. The brigade started in 2010 in the Boyle Heights neighborhood and the documentary premiered at SXSW in 2016.
The trailer is included below and is available online here. Sue from the Pittsburgh Lesbian Correspondent’s blog has posted an interview with Maryann ‘Sunhands’ who is one of the members of of the Ovarian Psycos Cycle Brigade. Maryann will be in Pittsburgh for the screening on Friday.
