CASSANDRO -Miami Film Society screening

Saúl Armendáriz, portrayed by Gael García Bernal, is a gay amateur wrestler from El Paso, who rises to international stardom after he creates the character ‘Cassandro,’ the “Liberace of Lucha Libre.” In the process, he upends not just the macho wrestling world, but also his own life. Based on a true story, this film is directed by Academy Award® winner Roger Ross Williams.

Whether it’s the timeless classics such as AMORES PERROS and Y TU MAMÁ TAMBIEN, the celebrated Festival favorites like NO and NERUDA, or even the delightful guilty pleasures like Pixar’s COCO and Marvel’s WEREWOLF BY NIGHT, one thing is for sure: we’re perpetually captivated by the brilliance of Gael García Bernal’s performances.
