March 13, 14 & 18: T-Rex is an intimate story about a new kind of American heroine. For the first time, women’s boxing is included in the 2012 Olympics. Fighting for gold is 17-year-old Claressa “T-Rex” Shields. From the streets of Flint, Michigan, Claressa is undefeated and utterly confident. Her fierceness extends beyond the ring. She protects her family at any cost, even when their instability and addictions threaten to derail her dream. As she gets closer to her dream her relationships with her coach and her family get more complicated. But Claressa is determined. She desperately wants to take her family to a better, safer place and winning gold could be her only chance.


*This film is screening as part of SXsports, and will also be open to Interactive badgeholders.

March 16-18: In Knock Knock, It’s Tig Notaro, comedian Tig Notaro travels across the country in order to put on a series of performances in the homes, back yards, barns, and basements of her most loyal fans. These trips allow Tig to free herself from the grind of the comedy circuit, and to perform for her fans in more intimate—and random—settings. Each show has the potential to be an epiphany or a disaster, yet she eagerly dives into the chaos time and time again—embracing all of the awkwardness, adventure, and occasionally weird energy along the way. After an insane year, these trips give Tig a chance to laugh at—and celebrate—life itself.
