FUERZAfest Documentary Screening │Cassandro, El Exotico!

Director: Marie Losier │ 2018 │ France

Documentary │ 73 minutes │English, Spanish

Cassandro is often referred to as the Liberace of Lucha Libre (Spanish for “freestyle wrestling”).

After 26 years of spinning dives and flying uppercuts on the ring, Cassandro, the star of the gender-bending Mexican wrestlers known as the Exoticos, is far from retiring. But with dozens of broken bones and metal pins in his body, he must now reinvent himself...

This year’s FUERZAfest “Honor the Past, Defend the Future” film screenings are sponsored by AARP. For complete list of films, click here.
