Mad For It

"Mad Eli" Collins is not afraid to say that he is a pro wrestling fanatic. He has lived and breathed the sport for as long as he can recall, and his love for wrestling is such that he even has promoted wrestling shows himself. But how can a retiree from the British town of Bath justify his love for a spectacle that is easily dismissed as being "fake"?

This short film is an observation on sports fandom, and the tests of loyalty and commitment that come with such passions. "Mad For It" is also a portrait of a truly notorious character within British wrestling circles who, after fifty years of wrestling involvement, "still gets worked up" by the spectacle.
