MADE WITH LOVE
In 2016, Calgary-born filmmaker Nate McCowan conceived the wonderful world and colourful characters of Luchador. The series pays homage to the 1960s and 1970s films featuring Lucha Libre stars and supernatural villains. Tragically, Nate passed away before his series dreams were realised. However, with the help of TELUS STORYHIVE, his friends and family have assembled a team of passionate local filmmakers to help bring his series to life.
