Veneno: The First Fall Title Sequence

The origin and rise of the most famous wrestler of all time in the Dominican Republic, Rafael Sánchez aka Jack Veneno, and his arch-nemesis, José Manuel Guzmán aka Relámpago Hernández. Two childhood friends that, inspired by El Santo movies, became the biggest wrestlers and Dominican pop culture biggest icons.
It's 1966. Jack Veneno moves to NYC leaving his wingman Josema in an country submerged in crisis and social revolution. When he comes back three years later he finds a very different country, and a very much different friend, who now becomes his arch-enemy due to the fame and glory of becoming superstars in the ring of lucha libre.
Directed by Taba Blanchard.
