Join PBS SoCaL at the Long Beach Cinematheque for a screening of VOCES Tales of Masked Men on Tuesday, November 13 at 7:30 PM at the Long Beach Cinematheque Bungalow Building.

Screening Description:

Explore “lucha libre” and its role in Latino communities in the United States and Mexico. Part circus and part athletic contest, the sport, famous for its masked wrestlers, provides a sense of “home” for new immigrants in the United States. It also continues to expand and build on its unique cultural tradition in countries where it enjoys enduring popularity. Simultaneously, lucha libre is contributing a lasting cultural idiom to America’s pop culture landscape.

 This project is made possible by support from Latino Public Broadcasting and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
