    • Synopsis
    • Mexico City is not Gotham City but if you were to run into any of the five masked activists who protect this metropolis, you’d wonder if you were not living inside a comic book.
      These modern-day Super Heroes are a group of Lucha Libre wrestlers who have taken their fight out of the ring and into the streets of the Mexican Capital. Super Barrio, Super Gay, Ecologista Universal, Super Animal and Fray Tormenta are real life masked Super Heroes who fight against evil slumlords, corrupt politicians, homophobia, pollution, animal rights abusers, and poverty. Though their true identity remains a mystery, they could easily be Mexico City’s most popular figures and last salvation.
      SUPER AMIGOS is a feature length documentary that follows 5 modern-day Super Heroes in Mexico City as they fight for social justice and human rights.
