Gustavo Vazquez galvanizes our gallery with his new 50-min. doc on Mexican wrestling, 'Que Viva La Lucha!'. Gustavo returned to Tijuana many times over the years to capture these surreal scenes of extreme theater in the sports arena. The masks, costumes, and characters often draw on mythological figures like Robin Hood, or comic-book heroes like Spiderman, or even corrupt politicians, cops, and other villains.
In the show’s second half, we premiere Lance Miccio’s 'Rock n' Roll Made in Mexico', an hr.-plus overview of the particular historical arc of Mexican Rock--including visits with legends Fito de la Parra, Javier Batiz, and Lalo Toral--from the innocent ‘50s, through the oppressive ban from ‘71 to ’85, to the electrified present.
