Synopsis:
Flexing Muscles is a wrestling movie about postmodern consumption and production: physical work and embodied culture for the digital age. Flexing Muscles is also an immersive, participatory, experimental ethnography on Mexico's spectacular masked wrestling – Lucha Libre – for which the filmmaker resumed his career fighting as The One-Eyed Cat (El Gato Tuerto), this time with a camera built into his mask.
