Famed as much for his flamboyant drag and pompadour as for his kicks and flips, legendary lucha libre star Cassandro’s ascent as one of the first openly gay wrestlers has resonated internationally for a quarter century. A champion who reinvented a macho sport, Cassandro exudes resilience - from the power to KO opponents to an ability to cope with a body pushed to its limits. Filmmaker Marie Losier captures the moving, humorous and always colorful dualities of this larger-than-life figure with her talent for forging intimacy with a subject.
Melding tender encounters and fight scenes that reflects the vivid textures and hues of a dazzling life in sport, this stirring portrait of Cassandro’s waning years in the ring is less a swan song than a meteor shower rendered in Technicolor.
