Local film and theater vets Austin Savage and Roland Esparza co-directed this offbeat comedy-drama about a luchador who quits the ring after the death of a friend and becomes a troubadour in hopes of winning back a lost love. It is part of our popular Local Flavor showcase, but is being shown out of competition. This marks the festival debut of the 19-minute short, which is based on a screenplay by Savage and Esparza, one of five winners in the Hornitos Tequila Black List “Take Your Shot” short film program last year. The filmmakers will introduce their film, and take a few questions after the screening. (It replaces the previously announced Desperately Seeking Susan). — Doug Pullen
