I hope you don't mind me sending out this reminder about the Salem Film Fest, which runs from this Friday, February 26 through next Thursday, March 4, presenting 34 engaging, beautiful, and challenging documentaries from all over the world. In three years, the festival has grown to be one of the largest all-documentary festivals in the country. All the details are at http://www.salemfilmfest.com/.
If you don't know what film to attend, may I suggest the film which I'm sponsoring, MAMACHAS OF THE RING, playing on Saturday, February 27, at 11 am (that's in the morning!). It is truly a unique film which deals with Bolivian female wrestlers, and the filmmaker will be present to discuss the film afterward.
A review below, and the photo above, to entice you.
After The Wrestler, Nacho Libre, Rocky, When We Were Kings, and scores of other films about hand to hand combat, you would be forgiven for thinking there's nothing that could go down in a ring you haven't seen before. You would be wrong.
