CHOLITA LIBRE: IF YOU DON’T FIGHT, YOU’VE ALREADY LOST
Jana Richter, Rike Holtz | Germany 2009 | 70 Min. | OmeU
What THEY want, THEY get. If THEY don’t do it, nobody does it. THEY can lose, but that just means that they will continue fighting. With their colorful glittering skirts, THEY are like flowers on the tarmac. And of course, THEY are stronger than all the men in the world. THEY are Cholitas and they are wrestlers. THEY fight on the stage to show us that this world can change. Lucha Libre (Wrestling) is a mix of sport, theatre, and choreography. We get to know Rosita the Heartbreaker, Carmen Rosa the Champion, Yolanda the Passionate and Claudina the Condemned.
