On Jezebel!

this is too much awesome for me to bear.... I will be counting every nano-second until I have experienced this film.

I am more excited about this trailer than any I've seen in a year. At the end, when the luchadora says she can't choose between the wrestling and her family... I looked down to see I was literally gripping the edge of my desk.

Side question: Does anyone know the history behind the amazing bowler-style hats?

The woman who jumped on the guy who said she had sold herself like a prostitute?

My hero.

Variety mentions Mamachas as a doc to look out for at Slamdance!

In the midst of the last of my very last preparations for Slamdance before I hop on a flight tomorrow AM (and somehow they don't all seem to feel like they are as "last-ish" as they should be, but I digress...) this came in on the google:

"The documentary section, where "King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters" unspooled, has already generated interest: Anticipation is swirling around Yony Leyser's "William Burroughs: A Man Within," and Baxter singles out "Mamachas del Ring," which examines the lives of Bolivian female wrestlers."

Thank you PB for the shout out!

Telegraph 21 features Mamachas del Ring, a great new site focusing on documentaries, spotlights Mamachas del Ring today. I'm honored to be in such great company, as the docs they've chosen are all captivating (Crude, P-Star Rising, Garbage Dreams are among the recent features).

Check out the feature, become a T21 facebook fan, and follow them on twitter-- (Can you tell I'm rooting for them?)
