ONTARIO, Canada | 88 minutes | 2019

The best part of the fight happens behind the scenes, according to Vampiro (aka Ian Richard Hodgkinson). Here’s proof. A wrestling star famous for his seductive, destructive punk-rock character, Vampiro has seen his share of challenges. This intense portrait of a chaotic life – abuse of all kinds in and out of the ring, a bodyguard job for Milli Vanilli, his high-flying years in Montreal – alternates between gut-wrenching and inspiring. But it’s mainly the story of a survivor as he faces the biggest battle of his life: raising his daughter.
Q&A with IAN "VAMPIRO" HODGKINSON (only October 11th) and filmmaker MICHAEL PASZT (October 11th and 12th)
