Movie poster image for CASSANDRO


Based on the thrilling and inspiring true story, BAFTA Nominee Gael García Bernal (MOZART IN THE JUNGLE) stars as the titular Cassandro – an exotico lucha libre character created by Saúl Armendáriz in his rise to wrestling fame in the 1980s. Directed by Academy Award winner Roger Ross Williams (GOD LOVES UGANDA), CASSANDRO premiered at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival to a picture-perfect rating of 100% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. Hollywood Reporter raves, “[An] entertaining biopic, which doubles as a gorgeous depiction of mother-son love and an exhilarating exploration of fearless queer identity in a macho environment.”
