A true action hero in the greatest tradition of Mexican luchador.
“Operation Luchador” is a film that Films.Solutions Help produced, and we had the honor to provide the Director of Photography. The film was directed by Alain Vézina, who is a specialist in Japanese film-culture, such as Godzilla and American slasher films from the 1950s and 60s.
The plot of the film takes place at the dawn of the Second World War, when Nazism was extending its grip over South America. The story follows the Golden Angel, a Mexican masked wrestler who is recruited by the Americans to flush out the spies of the Third Reich and put a stop to their nefarious schemes. The Golden Angel’s assignments, which are still classified as Top Secret and therefore absent from the history books, even brought him to a pivotal confrontation with Hitler himself.
