'Icarus' (2017, 2h 1m)

In this Oscar winning film, a major Olympic cheating scandal is uncovered by accident by an American documentary filmmaker and a Russian scientist, when they realize their combined knowledge points fingers at Russia's secret sports doping program.

Director: Bryan Fogel

In the press:

Fogel sets out to prove that he can shoot himself full of anabolic steroids and other banned substances, boost his best time, and then slip through the gauntlet of anti-doping tests. - Peter Debruge, Variety

Bryan Fogel could be considered either daring or foolhardy for his initial plan. But his work with Dr. Grigory Rodchenkov is levelheaded, and his documentary illuminating. - Ken Jaworowski, The NY Times

For anyone concerned with not just doping in sports but also the current international geopolitical climate, this documentary is a must-see. - Brian Costello, Common Sense Media
