Movie Night – Cassandro, The Exotico! 4/26/23

After 26 years of spinning dives and flying uppercuts in the ring, Cassandro, the star of the gender-bending cross-dressing Mexican wrestlers known as the Exoticos, is far from retiring.

Marie Losier, born in France, is a filmmaker and curator who’s worked in New York City for 20 years. She studied literature at the University of Nanterre (France) and Fine Arts at Hunter College in New York City. Losier’s films are regularly shown at prestigious art and film festivals and museums, such as the Berlinale, Rotterdam Film Festival Tribeca Film Festival, Tate Modern, MoMA, Palais de Tokyo, Centre Georges Pompidou and the Cinémathèque Française. She was included in the 2006 Whitney Biennial (Whitney Museum, N.Y.C).
She received the Guggenheim Award to work on Cassandro, The Exotico.
