Luchadoras

Luchadoras

European Premiere
A sensitive cinematic portrait of three courageous female wrestlers residing in Mexico’s Ciudad Juárez – a city known for its high murder rate against women – who in the ring and in their daily lives fight to redefine the image of what it means to be a woman in Mexico. A film that finds heroism in the everyday lives of its protagonists who subvert a local tradition to reclaim their dreams, and together a compelling feminist perspective of a machismo subculture that reflects on the social issues that envelop the subjects’ lives.
