We'll let you know when this movie is showing again in London.

Cassandro is a lucha libre (professional) wrestler known for outrageous gender presentation and equally spectacular wrestling moves. Shot on 16mm over the course of five years, Losier’s film follows a champion coming to terms with his body. We see the injuries and ice plunges, which contrast with the flamboyant masks and aerial manoeuvres. Even in his 40s, Cassandro catapults himself at opponents from great heights. But we also see him plunge to troubling depths, as his past struggles with addiction and abuse continue to haunt him.
