Posted on

Zackary Canepari

Flint, Mich., teenager Claressa “T-Rex” Shields had a simple, if extremely challenging, ambition: to compete as a boxer at the 2012 Olympic Games in London, England. Now, viewers can track her attempt to achieve that dream in the SXSW-screened T-Rex, a new documentary from directors Drea Cooper and Zackary Canepari.

T-Rex premieres on Vimeo on Demand June 1 and then plays theatrically in New York, June 24.

You can exclusively see the film’s trailer, above.
