PR Card Subject to Change: Pro Wrestling's Underground on DVD Jul 12

Cinema Libre



The independent circuit, often referred to as the indies, is local in nature, never televised and offers a paltry $5.00 to $20.00 per match. It began to gain ground in the mid-1980s, but when World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) promoter, Vince McMahon, testified in front of the New Jersey State Athletic Commission in 1989 that wrestling was in fact entertainment, regulations were lifted and the indy circuit exploded opening up to anyone who wanted to be a promoter or a wrestler. Since 1990, there have been over 250 wrestling associations organizing local matches throughout the country. Today, about half of them are still in business. With the glitz, the glamour and the popularity of the WWE, the life of an indy pro wrestler is quite the contrary.

A REAL AND RAW LOOK AT WRESTLING'S INDEPENDENT CIRCUIT

With its eclectic blend of wrestling legends, fallen stars, future hopefuls, disillusioned dreamers and one hardcore, backwoods philosopher, 'Card Subject to Change' is AN ABSORBING LOOK at the journey of pro-wrestling... - Mick Foley, Pro Wrestling Legend

Card Subject to Change: Pro Wrestling's Underground

PROVIDES A REVEALING PEEK INTO THE LIVES OF WRESTLERS



Available on DVD on July 12, 2011
LOS ANGELES (June 15, 2011) – In the critically-acclaimed film, The Wrestler, Randy The Ram Robinson (Mickey Rourke) is a down-and-out wrestler trying to re-capture the glory days of the '80s. In doing so, and despite being well past his prime, he is relegated to small town matches with local nobodies putting his body through unimaginable pain and torture. Despite his heart condition, he knows he belongs in the ring with his fans who truly love him. Card Subject to Change: Pro Wrestling's Underground is the real-life version of the film, offering a rare glimpse into the lives of independent pro wrestlers. The DVD will be released on July 12, 2011 by Cinema Libre Studio.

The independent circuit, often referred to as the indies, is local in nature, never televised and offers a paltry $5.00 to $20.00 per match. It began to gain ground in the mid-1980s, but when World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) promoter, Vince McMahon, testified in front of the New Jersey State Athletic Commission in 1989 that wrestling was in fact entertainment, regulations were lifted and the indy circuit exploded opening up to anyone who wanted to be a promoter or a wrestler. Since 1990, there have been over 250 wrestling associations organizing local matches throughout the country. Today, about half of them are still in business. With the glitz, the glamour and the popularity of the WWE, the life of an indy pro wrestler is quite the contrary.

Card Subject to Change marks Tim Disbrow's feature-length directorial debut. The title refers to the disclaimer that all promoters include on their flyers given the unpredictable nature of wrestlers and the featured match-ups. Disbrow is a lifelong fan and started out to make a film about the merits of the indy circuit -- specifically that it was not fake or the outcome pre-determined like the WWE. As Disbrow put it, My goal when making this film was to show the struggle that these dedicated athletes must endure in order to become successful in this strange and unorthodox industry.

The film's festival run included official selections to: DocMiami International Festival, DocUtah International Film Festival, Hoboken International Film Festival, Lighthouse International Film Festival and the Atlantic City International Film and Music Festival. Many of the sport's insiders have lauded Disbrow for his honest portrayal of a wrestler's life. Some of the notables featured are: Kevin Sullivan, Johnny Falco, Michael Trent Acid Verdi (who was battling drug addiction during filming), Rhett Titus, Lacey Von Erich (member of the Von Erich wrestling dynasty), Necro Butcher (who appeared in The Wrestler), Sabu and Kamala, to name a few.

DETAILS:

Card Subject to Change: Pro Wrestling's Underground takes you deep inside the underground world of professional wrestling. This compelling film follows several wrestlers as they make their way through local VFW halls, high school gyms and Elks' lodges grinding it out on the independent circuit where the payouts can range from $5 to $20 per match. Some do it for the love of the sport, others desperate to make it big; it is both heart-pounding and heart-wrenching. Tim Disbrow makes his directorial debut as he documents the circuit's standouts, including: Kevin Sullivan, Michael Trent Acid Verdi, Rhett Titus, Sabu, Kamala and Necro Butcher, who made an appearance in the critically-acclaimed film, The Wrestler. www.cardsubjecttochange.com | Facebook | Trailer | Clips | Art
