The riveting documentary Luchadoras is an intimate portrait of three courageous female wrestlers (Lucahdoras) from Ciudad Juárez who, despite being surrounded by machismo and constant danger, both in and out of the ring, fight to redefine the image of women in Mexico.

“A haunting, powerful film that goes behind the mask with the female wrestlers of Juárez.” – Carson Timar, Awards Watch

Short-statured Mini Serinita dreams of becoming a full-time Luchadora and leaving the factory work that disenfranchises so many women for the rest of their lives. From her house, Lady Candy can see the U.S. Border where her daughters were taken but, due to visa regulations, can never cross it. And Baby Star, a young single mother who was a Lucha Libre Star at an early age, is ready to make her comeback. (Dir.by Paola Calvo & Patrick Jasim, 2021,  Mexico/Germany, in Spanish with English subtitles,  93 mins., Not Rated)
