Trailer for Doglegs which will be screening at the Hot Docs Film Festival.

In a renegade Tokyo pro-wrestling league, the disabled battle the able-bodied in the name of smashing stereotypes. A paraplegic husband fights his wife. The handicapped champ pummels his mentor. But this is no freak show. In Doglegs, we witness a radical reclamation of labels and identities taking place in the ring. The wrestlers don’t define themselves according to their disabilities, instead one identifies as a “drunk cross-dresser” while another lays claim to “loser.” Some want to be seen as invulnerable and vicious, while others look for the opposite reaction. Doglegs is a confrontational, complex and provocative film that takes potentially offensive and outrageous subject matter and re-frames it, empowering the kick-ass characters to speak for themselves. They brawl—literally and figuratively—in an active, self-determined way that would never fly in society, and beat the living prejudice out of all challengers. This movie is not to be missed, or dismissed.
