Family comes in all shapes and sizes. For the Seattle Semi-Pro (SSP) Wrestlers, they chose this family. The new film from first-time directors Ryan Harvie and John Paul Horstmann, "Bodyslam: Revenge of the Banana," follows this misfit group as they form a bond and a following, only to see turmoil rise from within.

When a new wrestler, the Banana, joins the professional wrestling spoof-group he ends up on the wrong end of a joke and tries disbanding the SSP with a little help from the government. Indiewire has an exclusive clip and poster from the documentary. Watch the clip above and check out the poster below. 

"Bodyslam: Revenge of the Banana" world premieres in the Spotlight section of this year’s Tribeca Film Festival.
