This is a film about Gevin Fax, the oldest member of the women motorcycle collective, The Litas. Growing up in Los Angeles as an African American lesbian in the 1960s, Gevin found that the world wasn’t always forgiving. She started riding dirt bikes at the age of twelve which distanced her even further from the other kids. Though it was because of her love for riding that gifted her peace of mind; it was her meditation, her medicine, her way to escape all of the other noise. Now, because of The Litas, she shares her love for the road with thousands of women all over the world.
The Litas exists as the world’s largest female biking collective and provides a inclusive community for female riders globally. In 2016 I met a Lita member while backpacking Costa Rica. This led me to LA based Lita member, Gevin Fax. Gevin stuck me as a leader and tenacious headstrong woman right off the bat. I am inspired by Gevin’s unapologetic ability to follow her heart while empowering others to do the same. My hope is this film will instill the same flame for our audience to pursue whatever it is that makes them feel most alive.
