Dir. Bryan Fogel | Documentary | U.S.A. | 2017 | 120 min.
English and Russian, with English subtitles
When filmmaker and amateur cyclist Bryan Fogel begins an experiment on the effects that doping has on athletes, it quickly evolves into a story he never could have imagined. His search for truth leads him to renegade Russian scientist Dr. Grigory Rodchenkov, a pillar of his country’s anti-doping program. As his connection with the scientist deepens, he realizes just how far up the Russian chain of command the Olympic doping collusion goes—and more shocking yet, that he holds the power to reveal the biggest international sports scandal in living memory.
