CASSANDRO, THE EXOTICO!
from Marie Losier
France / 2018 / 1h13 / VO subtitled / documentary

In the colorful and flamboyant world of the Lucha Libre, Cassandro is a star as inescapable as singular. He is the king of Exóticos, Mexican transvestite wrestlers who dynamize prejudices in a sport that is strongly macho.

Shot in 16mm with a handgun, which reinforces both the picturesque character and the intimacy of the relationship that is emerging with him, Cassandro, the Exotico! is exactly the image of his hero: he smiles, is beautiful, but does not hide anything. Cassandro, in many ways, is like a quintessence of the world of Marie Losier, filmmaker accustomed survivors, shattered life, irresistible, funny, colorful and insolent. Here, she ventures into an unknown world, that of big boxed guys and Lycra suits!
