Preceding this we will show clips from a Mexican Magazine tv show called "Programa Contrapunto" which had a series of episodes exploring Mexican Lucha Libra called "Programa Contrapunto: Pro Wrestling. Circus, Miming, Theater or Sport?" which aried in 1984. It features El Santo, Blue Demon and others from the Mexican Wrestling scene. 

IF You have any El Santo paraphernalia please bring it to the screening! We would love to see it. 

About El Santo: Rodolfo Guzmán Huerta (September 23, 1917 – February 5, 1984), more widely known as El Santo (The Saint), was a Mexican Luchador enmascarado (Spanish for masked professional wrestler), film actor, and folk icon. El Santo, along with Blue Demon and Mil Máscaras, is one of the most famous and iconic of all Mexican luchadores, and has been referred to as one of "the greatest legends in Mexican sports." His wrestling career spanned nearly five decades, during which he became a folk hero and a symbol of justice for the common man through his appearances in comic books and movies. He is said to have popularized professional wrestling in Mexico just as Rikidozan did in Japan. -IMDB

We would like to thank so very much Ignacio Molina Moysen of Filmoteca UNAM for premitting us to show this great Santo film.
