Thank you, Slamdance TV, for editing me into at least a semi-intelligible human being. I know what you were up against!

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!
Telegraph21.com, 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?)

In an article that focuses on the state of the Sundance Film Festival, KT shouts out Mamachas as a doc to look for in the Slamdance fest.
"Not in Sundance at all but playing at the rival Slamdance Film Festival is "Mamachas del Ring," a bittersweet excursion to the world of Carmen Rosa, a feisty Aymara Indian professional wrestler from Bolivia who enters the ring in full skirts and petticoats but finds that her toughest battles are against society and her husband."
