CASSANDRO - Annick Donkers
CASSANDRO
"In early 2012 I met Cassandro, a "luchador exótico" or cross- dressing wrestler from El Paso, Texas, who has wrestled all over the world. I started to document his life, not only his public performances but also away from the glitter and glamour. His life seemed a daily struggle; to forget the past, to overcome the prejudices of being gay in a macho world, to resist the temptation of drugs at the beginning of his career, and more recently to stay positive after a serious knee injury. I got to know him as a person with great inner strength who has been able to make his mark among the most important wrestlers in the world." (Annick Donkers - Mexico /USA, 2012-2014)
