Lucha Loco - The Free Wrestlers of Mexico (Paperback): Malcolm Venville Lucha Loco - The Free Wrestlers of Mexico (Paperback)

Malcolm Venville's rare deluxe Mexican wrestling volume, now available in an accessible, popular format. Lucha Libre, or "free wrestling," is a cultural phenomenon--renowned not only for the wrestler's high-flying moves, but also for the mythology of their personas. These masked figures (a ritual dating back to Aztec culture) treat their masks--and the identities they embody--as sacred. El Santo, the first luchador pop star, rarely took off his mask even in retirement, and was eventually buried in it. It is such a significant part of the sport (and the performance) that the removal of an opponent's mask in the ring is grounds for disqualification. Malcolm Venville fell in love with the sport after catching a show in Mexico and spent several weeks photographing and interviewing wrestlers outside the ring in a small portrait studio. Alongside each portrait is the wrestler's fighting name and a signature quote from these interviews. Among the subjects are an accountant and a doctor by day--but Super Pinocchio and Astro Boy by night. They offer such gems as: "American wrestling is more about the lighting," "My character is the fastest in Mexico, but not when I'm making love," and "I combine wrestling with stripping but wrestling's my passion." The result is an even more hilarious and colorful look at this already entertaining spectacle--part sport, part soap opera--as well as a window into the life of a luchador, a world normally shrouded in mystery.

One night in Mexico City, Carmen Munoz, sex worker, was roaming the streets looking for customers. Unexpectedly, she found two colleagues, both over sixty years old, sleeping on the street, covered by newspapers. After almost forty years of giving service to butchers, porters, refuse collectors and criminals, they were now long forgotten by their families and society. Carmen was confronted with what would be her own fate, like most women of her profession. Striving for dignity for all of them, she organized her colleagues and led a group that resolved to find a home where they could spend their last days in safety and warmth.
In 2006, after twelve years of work, and with the support of Mexican intellectuals and artists, the government gave them a seventeenth-century mansion, where Carmen founded Casa Xochiquetzal "-- Casa X." Around sixty women, all over fifty years old, receive shelter, food, and medical and psychological care. This is not just a retirement home -- most of these women who live there still walk the streets. But Casa X is the only refuge for prostitutes in Latin America.
Casa X is located in the heart of the notorious district of Tepito. Although only eight blocks from the Historic Center of Mexico City, Tepito is a micro-universe, where life is a unique reality. For nearly five hundred years it has been a place of impunity, crime, smuggling, violence and prostitution. This neighborhood did not submit to the Aztec Empire, or to the Spanish conquistadors, or to the current authorities. Tepito has an identity that goes beyond its boundaries. It has its own social organization, myths, heroes, slang and even its own local deity, "La Santa Muerte "(Holy Death). The women of Casa X are at the bottom of the ladder of this world, and keep their memory of it in their bodies.
The British photographer and film director Malcolm Venville has made a searing photographic record of a deranged reality. Complimenting Venville's photographs is a series of astonishingly candid interviews with the women of Casa X by the well-known Mexican writer Amanda de la Rosa. These are the portraits and testimonies of thirty-five survivors of the monster of the City, with much to say about life in a slum in Latin America; about the Mexico that horrifies; about sex, poverty, love, and the darkest side of human nature.
