Bold documentarian and 17-year Japan resident Heath Cozens was granted intimate access to the startling world of disabled wrestling—a world of intrigue, violence, love, and pride.
The group Doglegs was formed in Tokyo in 1991 when two cerebral-palsy sufferers fought over a girl—and loved it. They decided to formalize the fight club and expand as a way for all kinds of disabled participants to express themselves.
Cozens is in the final stages of post-production but needs funds to complete his film. Hence an event to raise cash while initiating guests into this brave new world.
There will be preview footage from the film, live music from Osakan band Expe, and two real Doglegs wrestling matches to behold.
