While the big awards season festivals are finished, New York City still has more to offer cinephiles, with DOC NYC coming up. As the name suggests, the event puts the spotlight on documentaries, and as always, the programming reaches far and wide to bring audiences stories they likely won’t find anywhere else. And today we have the exclusive trailer for “Lucha Mexico,” a movie that takes viewers ringside for one of the biggest sensations south of the border.
Directed by Ian Markiewicz and Alexandria Hammond, the film turns the camera on a fascinating handful of grapplers — Shocker, Jon “Strongman” Andersen, Fabian “El Gitano,” Arkangel, Blue Demon Jr., and more — to tell stories both heroic and tragic about these personalities. “Lucha Mexico” also captures what makes lucha libre such an exciting sport for the legions of fans who follow every match.
“Lucha Mexico” will makes its U.S. Premiere at DOC NYC which runs from November 12-19. Watch below.
