你願意為了自己所喜愛的運動花上幾十年時間和青春嗎?

由法國導演Marie Losier的鏡頭下的Cassandro是一個堅強努力,像是傳奇般的一個跨性別專業摔跤手。因為他喜歡摔跤手所戴的面罩,熱愛這項運動,所以即使被打倒過無數次,受傷無數,他還是咬硬牙關,堅強的捱下去。

紀錄片CASSANDRO THE EXOTICO 講述在墨西哥一個跨性別的摔跤手花上26年的時間和血汗,最終成為了成為著名的跨性別摔跤手,亦被人稱他為怪人Cassandro。可是,誰會知道他榮譽的背後的血與汗呢?還未到還退伇的年紀,他的身體卻已有幾十根曾經骨折的骨頭,那此傷,必須要以金屬釘子來固定在他的身體內,他要忍受着常人根本沒法想像的痛苦。他的故事帶着他的痛苦,犧牲,勇氣和代價,透過這故事,不僅是讓觀眾了解摔跤手的血與淚,向這位令人欽佩的怪人致敬,更是要讓大眾明白性別和性取向不會是一個阻礙自己去追尋理想的制肘。
