“Gored is a fascinating portrait of a man some would call driven, and others may call psychotic.” – The Guardian
Antonio Barrera is the most gored bullfighter in modern history. He has been stabbed an incredible twenty-three times over the course of his career but now with a family to consider and a body that is broken, Barrera has decided to retire – but not before one final fight.
Far from being a celebration of the controversial sport, director Ido Mizrahy attempts to get into the mind of the bullfighter to better understand the motivation to carry on. This is a portrait of a man who has “…lost respect for death”. Older, wiser and with more to lose, Barerra steps into the ring for the last time, hoping he has one, final descabello left.
