Batwoman (La Mujer Murciélago)
Archivists Viviana García-Besné and Peter Conheim in person at Friday and Saturday screenings!
Maura Monti stars as the titular Batwoman, or Gloria, depending on how well you know her. She’s a female twist on Bruce Wayne, one of the richest women in the world who is also a luchador and an international spy. At the outset of the film, a series of male luchadors have been mound dead in Acapulco. Mario Robles (Hector Godoy) is the main detective on the case. Mario is one of the few people who know Batwomen’s true identity, along with FBI agent Tony Roca (Armando Silvestre). Robles enlists Batwoman to help with the case since she is also a luchador, and they train at the same gym.
