WHO IS ICARUS?
In Greek mythology, Icarus, wearing wings of feathers and wax flew too near the Sun, melting his wings, and well, you know the rest.
ICARUS, THE DOCUMENTARY:
Director Bryan Fogel danced with fate, flew towards the sun and survived, barely.
Fogel started out documenting his experiment with performance-enhancing drugs and accidentally stumbled upon a real life global political scandal involving Russian conspiracies, the World Anti-Doping Agency, the International Olympic Committee, mysterious deaths and an unlikely whistleblower.
Bryan Fogel is a very, very brave man.
Mind-blowing is an understatement. This riveting true drama stays with you for a long time, possibly a lifetime.
Icarus is available for screening on Netflix.
