WATCH: World Premiere Trailer for Tribeca Strongman Film 'Bending Steel'

Dave Carroll's "Bending Steel."

Indiewire has your first look at the trailer for "Bending Steel" which was voted as our November 'Project of the Month' back in 2011. The film will be making its premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival next month and we have your exclusive access to the trailer.

The gorgeously shot documentary centers on the story of Chris Schoek, a 43 year old man training to become a  professional strongman and gain acceptance in a city where he's always felt alone. A Queens, NY native, Chris' story is deeply personal and raw as we see him uncover insecurities before the camera and speak candidly about his sense of being an outsider.

Take a look at the trailer below:

    This is one method to become an actual strongman in his mind, awesome.
