TALES OF MASKED MEN Producers/Director: Carlos Avila Documentary/60 minutes
From the director of the acclaimed Foto-Novelas, TALES OF MASKED MEN explores the fascinating, mysterious world of "lucha libre" and its role in Latino communities in the United States, Mexico, and Latin America. Famous for its masked wrestlers and called by one aficionado "a sport in the key of melodrama," "lucha libre" is part circus, part athletic contest, part theater. The sport inspires passionate loyalty while contributing a lasting cultural idiom to America's pop culture landscape.
