Latino Filmmaker Explores Lucha Libre in New Documentary

This past weekend we had the pleasure to sit and talk with Carlos Avila about his upcoming documentary on Lucha Libre. Below, a brief description from the official website

Tales of  Masked Men, a new documentary about the colorful, fascinating and mysterious world of lucha libre— Mexican wrestling — will be the season opener for VOCES ON PBS, Latino Public Broadcasting’s arts and culture series on PBS. Shot in Mexico and the United States and filled with the 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. Directed by Carlos Avila, Tales of Masked Men premieres on VOCES on Friday, September 28, 2012, 10:00–11:00 p.m. ET on PBS (check local listings), in conjunction with Hispanic Heritage Month.”
