'Fake It So Real' with Live Wrestling at Rooftop Films Thursday, July 28, Brooklyn

Thursday, July 28 is the New York Premiere of Robert Greene’s Fake It So Real at Rooftop Films. The movie will be followed by a live "wrestling battle royale" featuring wrestlers from the film.

Fake It So Real follows a ragtag group of pro indie wrestlers in North Carolina, exploring what happens when the over-the-top theatrics of the wrestling ring collide with the realities of the working-class South. Filmmaker Robert Greene and the wrestlers will do a Q&A after the film.
