Théâtre extrême

Three hours on the testosterone-fueled sport of wrestling in Quebec, a sport entirely given over to grandiose and exaggerated performance. This series examines all aspects of this disturbing and dangerous way of life. Part One: the evolution of wrestling in Quebec, from its early glory days until now. Part Two: The promoters explain how the small wrestling organization works. Part Three: The wrestlers reflect on their all-consuming passion for the sport.
