Luchadoras

View on the Pragda STREAM site

The film is an intimate portrait of three courageous female Luchadoras (wrestlers) from Ciudad Juárez. Despite being surrounded by machismo, they redefine the image of women in Mexico.

The short-statured Mini Serinita’s dream is to become a full time Luchadora and leave the factory work that disenfranchises so many women for good. Lady Candy can see the U.S. Border from her house. Her daughters were taken to the U.S., but due to visa regulations she cannot cross the border to see them. Baby Star is a young single mother with a Lucha Libre childhood past. She is looking to make a comeback. With Mexican passion, they present a new image of what it means to be a woman in Mexico.
