filmABOUT THE FILM

 Tales of Masked Men 

A Film by Carlos Avila 

Tales of Masked Men is a documentary exhibiting the colorful, fascinating and mysterious world of lucha libre- Mexican wrestling. Shot in Mexico and the U.S and filled with passion and excitement that defines its subject, the film explores the history of lucha libre and what has made this eighty- year- old phenomenon endure. 

Described by cultural anthropologist Heather Levi as "a sport in the key of melodrama," lucha libre springs from the same root as American professional wrestling, but has taken on the unique characteristics of Mexico and the country's long-standing fascination with masks. Masks conceal faces but not feelings, allowing luchadors to transform themselves into either the character of a rudo, the rule breaking villain, or a técnico, the fair and square, technically proficient hero. Practiced in large and small arenas throughout Mexico and the U.S as well as other countries, this "working class" sport is truly interactive, with multigenerational fans passionately involved in the high drama of the ring.
