Casket Cinema pedals into April with the Oscar winning documentary, “Icarus”. On April 1st at 8pm we will virtually discuss the film.

Icarus, follows the director, Bryan Fogel, as he decides to dope himself to find out if he can become a faster, stronger cyclist. This decision leads him to Dr. Grigory Rodchenkov, a Russian doctor, and from there the movie blows up into one of the crazier and life is stranger than fiction films made in the last decade.

Icarus is a 2017 American documentary film by Bryan Fogel, which chronicles Fogel's exploration of the option of doping to win an amateur cycling race and happening upon a major international doping scandal when he asks for the help of Grigory Rodchenkov, the head of the Russian anti-doping laboratory. It premiered at Sundance Film Festival on January 20, 2017, and was awarded the U.S. Documentary Special Jury Award (Orwell Award). Netflix acquired the distribution rights[5] and released Icarus globally on August 4, 2017. At the 90th Academy Awards, the film won the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature.

Because of the pandemic, this will be a virtual screening. Pre-watch the film on the Netflix platform beforehand, we discuss the film together in an online virtual screening.
