Top Rope Productions presents a documentary short that is the definitive film about lucha libre. Leap off the top rope into the world of Mexican wrestling!

What started out as an American carnival sideshow attraction in the last century has grown today into a multi- million dollar, worldwide entertainment spectacle. Professional wrestling comes in all shapes, sizes, colors and most importantly, cultures. Mexico's fascination with pro wrestling has grown from a curious infatuation to a nationalistic obsession in the span of over eighty years. Mexican lucha libre is physical embodiment of all the great storytelling elements: dramatic, theatrical, acrobatic, enigmatic, and most of all -- exciting. Using the fundamentals of dramatic structure lucha libre utilizes the oldest principles in the book, good guy vs. bad guy. Inside the ring, the colorful pageantry and athleticism of the performers becomes a surreal and unique experience not equaled in the worlds of sports or entertainment. A secretive society for decades, the true story of lucha libre is brought to life in Viva Lucha Libre, a fascinating look behind the scenes and beyond the masks of history's greatest lucha libre performers. Discover how lucha libre has influenced cinema, graphic design, art and music around the world. Fast paced, fun and informative "Viva Lucha Libre" is the definitive documentary about one of the world's most intriguing ways of life.
