Local film maker Dave Farrell’s latest project is a look at the strange underground world of wrestling in Canberra.

This from his website:

    “The Young & The Wrestlers” is a Documentary following a group of Canberrans who share a common hobby: Professional Wrestling!

    The feature length film will document a six month period as the members of the Pro Wrestling Alliance deal with their lives and each other in the lead up to the biggest show of the year ‘Clash in the Capital.’

It’s premiering on 20 November at Dendy at 18.30, tickets on sale now ($15).

Here’s a trailer:

UPDATED: We now have two double passes available for the 20 November screening at 6.30pm. The first two premium members to contact us asking for the tickets will get their name(+1) on the door.

The movie now also has a Facebook fan page if you’re inclined to show your support.

Another Update: Due to popular demand a second show has been added at 9.30.

What’s Your opinion?

A tip for Farrell Films: get acquainted with an audio engineer (or a low/high pass filter), the first interview part was almost as painful as one of those body slams.

I’ll just have to take your word for it, emmy-lou!

: )

I agree emmy, a mate of mine used to be involved with this untill he went on to pursuing his UFC dream. It’s just like watching a stage show – you know it’s not real, but it’s just a hell of a lot of fun.

Although, I may have been under the influence when I was watching, too…

You’d be surprised at how good their shows actually are. I’ve got a friend who does it, went to see a show not expecting to enjoy it much, but I loved every minute of it.

And Granny, the girls are just as bad as the boys!

Danman, it was completely gross and disgusting!

Danman 12:36 pm 28 Oct 08

Probably was not fake blood – I cant view vids @ work – but people suffer for their art every day.

Just the other week I chipped my elbow on a night shoot… It comes with the territory.

Jazz 12:30 pm 28 Oct 08

other than each other perhaps danman. not convinced that was fake blood

Danman 12:03 pm 28 Oct 08

They aren’t harming anyone – and at least they are not jacking your car so leave em alone.

Awesome!

Wrestling in Canberra huh?

I will definately check this out.

:o)

These blokes are the most wonderful bunch of freaks around. If you haven’t seen one of their shows I highly recommend it!!! I just hope the fillum does them justice.

fhakk 11:07 am 28 Oct 08

I LOL’d. That could be incredibly funny.

Tracker 10:40 am 28 Oct 08

Cool idea, great opportunity for a solid expose of a local sub-culture. That trailer wasn’t very impressive though.

Granny 9:56 am 28 Oct 08

Warning: I am about to be extemely sexist ….

This is why, the three sweetest words in the English language are not, “I love you,” but “It’s a girl!”

*hehehe*

Also caveman dude is a bit scary … really wouldn’t want to be Mrs Caveman Dude!

bloodnut 9:56 am 28 Oct 08

Sounds fantastically hilarious. That’s one I won’t miss.
