On “Lucha Doc”: A Chat with Director and Producer Erich Von Tagen

As mentioned in previous posts, I’ve been the subject of an upcoming lucha libre documentary which is being produced under the working title “Lucha Doc.” During a recent visit to Portland, Oregon, I had a drink and a chat with my friend Erich Von Tagen, the Director and Producer of Lucha Doc. We discussed (of course) Lucha Doc, La Avispa’s most recent blog post, Erich’s experiences watching wrestling in Mexico and Japan, and our upcoming trip to Mexico City together.

On a side note, there are two obviously censored moments within the interview wherein Erich accidentally mentioned luchador’s real names. Also, moving forward I’ll be publishing podcasts here, but I will eventually archive them on the iTunes store for all of you iPhiles.

    Hola! I enjoy your work and think your analysis of lucha libre is interesting, as I have just gotten into lucha libre culture myself. I am writing an article about luchadors and masculinity and was wondering if you could answer a few questions? It is for my travel blog as I am traveling throughout Mexico currently. If you would like to chat please email me at adrien.behn@gmail.com, it would be wonderful to speak with you!

    Warmly,
    Adrien
