About the Film

This is PROGRESS is a film about passion, community and family. Following a wrestler, a wrestling fan and the promoters over the course of 18 months; it dissects what makes them, their wrestlers and the fans stand out as some of the most exciting and unique in the world. Via a vérité approach we witness through hard work, love and sacrifice, how a grassroots company can turn into a global, cultural phenomenon. With punk-rock pro-wrestling as their maxim, we witness not only how wrestling can be cool, but an art form to be respected.
