Bim, Bam, Boom, Las Luchas Morenas

## ##
Bim bam boom, meet the Moreno sisters! Three women, three sisters, three professional luchadoras. Under the name Las Luchas Morenas they practice the Mexican national sport: wrestling! All three are part of the Dynasty Moreno: Rossy, Esther, and Cynthia are competitive wrestlers on the ring. But they also bring Lucha Libre into life, wrestling with knives, pig heads, flowers and feathers! Marie Losier‘s characteristic whirring camera swirls curiously around them and captures it all in a cheerful and musical tribute to fantasy, to the child in all adults, and to Mexican culture. But it is ultimately a tribute to the three women, who in spite of all their differences have chosen to lead their lives according to their own ideas.

Marie Losier, born in France in 1972, is a filmmaker and curator currently living and working in Berlin.
