Make Them Believe

Make Them Believe is a documentary exploring Moscow’s underground wrestling scene through the eyes of one up-and-coming performer. Follow Tim Master’s journey (who plays the heel ‘American Hope’) as he chases his dream of becoming a professional wrestler.

A WWE-obsessed Russian college kid lives out his fantasy of becoming a professional wrestling star far from the glamorous spotlight of American pro wrestling as he competes for the coveted belt in Moscow’s underground ring. #Sports #Documentary Short Films #StaffPicks on Vimeo.

In this unexpectedly relatable film, director Taimi Arvidson tackles the universal struggle of the pursuit of a dream.
