“Luchadoras is a powerful statement of how some women in Ciudad Juarez on Mexico´s border to USA are dealing with their lives. They are single mothers – and female fighters. Lady Candy, Baby Star and Mini Sirenita are all generously inviting us into their lives – telling us about how they combine fighting, a regular job, and motherhood. Directors Paola Calvo, Patrick Jassim have had a warm and wise hand on the camera and the editing.” (Jury)
