Coming to theatres and to VOD this Friday, July 15: LUCHA MEXICO
Alex Hammond and Ian Markiewicz’s look at wrestling across the border debuted at Guanajuato last year. It came stateside at DOC NYC, and has also screened at DOXA and Hola Mexico.
I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
In Mexico, the war between good and evil has been waged each week for decades, thrilling generations of fans with the spectacle of Lucha Libre. Real-life superheroes and villains, these masked wrestlers work tirelessly to entertain their legions of fans. Gaining unprecedented access to the largest Lucha federations, Alex Hammond and Ian Markiewicz offer an entertaining, no-holds-barred look at some of the sport’s top performers, from the “1000% Guapo” Shocker, the little person mascot KeMonito, the Luchador heir Blue Demon Jr, hardcore wrestler El Hijo Del Perro Aguayo, and American bodybuilder Jon “Strongman” Andersen.
