Los Campeones Screening In Sydney

LC movie

In the early 1990’s when I lived in Sydney, I used to walk past a strange interesting-looking storefront in inner-city Chippendale.  The window displayed a huge painting of an Alien head, and inside the store was all manner of weird pop-culture items and artifacts.  Well, the place turned out to be the ‘Mu-Meson Archives’ , a wonderful mix of obscure film, UFology, pop-culture and conspiracy theory  – you know a real alternative to everything else that was out there.

I got to know the Mu-Meson founders Jamie and Aspasia, and it was Jamie (aka Jay Katz) who in 1993 out of the blue said to me “Have you heard about those movies from the 50’s & 60’s where Mexican Wrestlers would fight monsters?”

What?  He had to be making this up, surely?   Well he wasn’t, and 16 years (!) later – after 3 episodes of Rudo By Night, 52 episodes and a feature length DVD of Mucha Lucha!, and countless excursions to watch Lucha Libre in Tijuana, Mexico City and California – our feature film ‘Los Campeones de La Lucha Libre’ screens at the Mu-Meson archives theatre on July 3rd, 2009.

If you are in Sydney, the screening is at 8PM, (Crn Parramatta Rd & Trafalgar St Annandale) together with a documentary entitled Tales from Mexico of Wrestling Politics & Religion  and some informative narration and banter from Jay Katz and Miss Death themselves.  Wish we could be there.

Another reminder (and these will keep comin’) that our animated movie Los Campeones De La Lucha Libre will be premiering in Sydney, Australia next month. Yep, this is the first time that it will be showing in Australia! Unfortunately we can’t make it to Sydney,  but we will be there in spirit!

Date: July 3rd, 2009
Place: Mu-Meson Archives, Annandale
Time: TBD

Link to MuMeson website and film program: http://www.mumeson.org/

Our hosts Jay Katz and Miss Death are also showing a Lucha Libre documentary, and we will be present via DVD (we are preparing a little something to proceed the movie – not least explaining how Eddie was introduced to ‘Mexican Wrestling movies’ all those years ago by Mr. Jay Katz himself!)

Furthermore, word has it that DVDs of Los Campeones have been released in Mexico by BouncyNet Inc.  These are fullscreen (why no widescreen?) versions with both Spanish and English audio and subtitles. No US distribution yet. More information about our movie can found in the downloadable L.C. presskit.
