Tales of Masked Men

  • Date: Thursday, September 12
  • Time: 12:00 noon CT
  • Location: ACB 240

Tales of Masked Men is a creative and imaginative exploration of the colorful, fascinating, and mysterious world of lucha libre—Mexican wrestling. Both a fast-paced and audience-involving spectacle, this “working class” sport is practiced in arenas large and small throughout Mexico and the United States, as well as other countries. Filled with the passion and excitement that defines its subject, the film examines the history of lucha libre and what has made this 80-year-old phenomenon endure. Filmed in Mexico and the United States, the film also profiles three legendary wrestlers, each of whom embodies various aspects of the sport and its traditions.

This film will be screened at the Lubbock campus only, but is available for checkout by faculty, staff, and students at the other TTUHSC campuses.

Attendees are welcome to bring their own lunch. Free snacks will be provided!
