Meet the Director – Carlos Avila – Tales of Masked Men

You are invited to come meet Director Carlos Avila. He directed the soon to air on KPBS documentary – Tales of Masked Men. Tales of Masked Men will air on KPBS on September 28, 2012. But you have a chance to attend the only San Diego pre-screening on Thursday, September 20, 2012. See attached flyer for time and location.

Tales of Masked Men is a creative and imaginative exploration of the colorful, fascinating, and mysterious world of lucha libre—Mexican wrestling. Both a fast-paced and audience-involving spectacle, this “working class” sport is practiced in arenas large and small throughout Mexico and the United States, as well as other countries. Filled with the passion and excitement that defines its subject, the film examines the history of lucha libre and what has made this 80-year-old phenomenon endure. Filmed in Mexico and the United States, the film also profiles three legendary wrestlers, each of whom embodies various aspects of the sport and its traditions.

You may want to offer extra credit to your students or just come on your own. Just don’t forget your mascara.
