A Q&A with Subject Cassandro to follow screening.
Meet Saul Armendariz, aka Cassandro, the longstanding, openly gay champion of Mexican Exotico wrestling. At 47, Cassandro has spent his life bringing high drag and high-octane stunts to devoted audiences, but challenging prejudice outside the ring is no easy task. Chronicling broken hearts, broken bones, and Cassandro's unbeatable spirit, director Marie Losier (The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jay) brings us a playful and lovingly stylized portrait of the man known as the “Liberace of Lucha Libre.”
