Luchadoras: dir Paola Calvo & Patrick Jasim (2021)

3 December @ 3.15 pm - 5.00 pm

AED 52.50

An intimate documentary portrait of three female wrestlers (luchadoras) from Ciudad Juarez. One wants to be able to give up the factory work that disenfranchises so many women; another cannot cross the border to see her daughters in the States; the third is a young single mother who was a child wrestler and is now looking to make a comeback. Between them they redefine the image of what it means to be a woman in Mexico.

In German with English subtitles. The film is part of the second German Film Festival organised by Goethe-Institut Gulf Region; 11 films will be screened in two locations, Cinema Akil in Dubai and Manarat Al Saadiyat, Abu Dhabi.
