Sisters of Wrestling

Sisters of Wrestling paints an intimate portrait of Azaelle, Loue O’Farrell, and LuFisto, three warriors of the ring for whom wrestling is both a passion and an escape from everyday injustice. 


Sisters of Wrestling is a feature-length documentary focusing on the condition of women in the wrestling scene in Quebec. While Loue must balance her new role as a mother with that of a wrestler, Azaelle tries to make the most of her final moments in the ring before an indefinite break, while LuFisto aspires to reach higher heights at the age of 42. Through an intimate approach, the film paints a sensitive portrait of these ring warriors for whom wrestling is both a passionate love and a daily outlet.
