Irma is an intimate musical portrait of Irma Gonzalez, the former world champion of womenâ€™s professional wrestling. Filmed in Ciudad NezahualcÃ³yotl â€“ a notorious district of Mexico City â€“ Irma contradicts everything we have come to expect from stories reported from Mexico. Featuring music written and performed by Ms. Gonzalez, Irmaâ€™s story surges with love and deceit, masculine strength, feminine charms, and an extraordinary sense of humor.
â€œA portrait built like a Russian matryoshka: surprise after surprise, revelation after revelation.â€ - Carlos Ramos / IndieLisboa -
