The hero is an unbeatable Georgian wrestler who won 7 matches in 55 seconds, who still keeps in secret his special three-way technique to win the competitor and who lives alone in a big house, full of memories and photos of legendary wrestlers, with water dripping from the cieling. A wrestler who is admired by the Russian pop diva Alla Pugachova but who is still waiting for a woman to come into his house and into his life. He is Fantomas, a 75 years old wrestler with unbeatable heart. We’re going to join him on his ride through the Georgian landscape and through the landscape of the memories of this man with old body and young soul.
February 5 - 9, 2011, Palavani will be one of 7 documentary projects to attend Ex Oriente Film Babies (Prague, Czech Republic), a post-production workshop designed for former Ex Oriente Film projects.
