Festival starts in


In 1986, GLOW was a prime-time wrestling series, complete with elaborate characters, skits, and, of course, wrestling. Women like Mountain Fiji and Matilda the Hun battled for the GLOW crown. This film chronicles the rise and fall of this once successful t.v. show through the stories of those who lived it. From the initial open-call auditions, to the grueling training with wrestling legend Mando Guerrero, to over-night success and global recognition, to the show's sudden and unexpected cancellation in 1990, the GLOW girls recall their time on the show with a mixture of heartfelt nostalgia and tearful regret over injuries and the loss of friends. For some, the show was a brief foray into acting and a short-lived adventure on the way to a normal life. For others, that time in GLOW would impact their lives for years. For all of the women, working on GLOW was a unique experience that will bond them forever.

The filmmaker will attend the screening.

At AcA Sat. Jan. 26th at 1:10 pm. $5.
