When Academy Award Winning Director Bryan Fogel set out to make ICARUS he had one goal: to examine how easy it is to get away with doping in professional sports. Instead, he was connected to a Russian doctor-turned-whistleblower, Grigory Rodchenkov. Together, they blew the lid off a state-sponsored doping scheme that has been ongoing in Russia for decades and which directly led to Russia being banned from the 2018 Winter Games in South Korea.
In a story that rivals any international spy thriller, Fogel’s program takes audiences through his quixotic adventure making ICARUS. Audiences are captivated by the unprecedented unravelling of an international scandal leading directly to the Kremlin, and the intricacies of Russian covert tampering—not only in the U.S. but on the international playing field.
FOGEL HAS GIVEN KEYNOTE SPEECHES TO ORGANIZATIONS AROUND THE WORLD AND HAS APPEARED ON ABC NIGHTLINE, CHARLIE ROSE, SETH MEYERS, JOE ROGAN, CNN, ESPN, THE VIEW, NPR, BBC, AND HAS BEEN FEATURED IN PUBLICATIONS AROUND THE GLOBE.
