ABOUT THE FILM

Luchadora follows Luna Mágica - an aging professional Lucha Libre Wrestling star who dreams of becoming World Wrestling Champion while struggling to make ends meet as a single mom in Mexico City and regain custody of her son who was taken by her estranged husband who claims she is unfit to be a mother because of her profession as a luchadora.

Luchadora shines light into the fascinating sub-culture of professional female Lucha Libre Wrestling in Mexico and explores issues of gender and power through Luna’s “lucha” both in and out of the ring. It is a universal story about following a dream and fighting for the things you love most.
