Doc Soup Calgary - Official Selection, Hot Docs 2014

The Armstrong Lie: Alex Gibney | United States | 2013 | 124 min.

Five years ago, director Alex Gibney set out to make a documentary about the miraculous, superhuman comeback of Lance Armstrong to competitive cycling after his struggle with cancer and reemergence from retirement.

But by the time the film was complete, in 2013, Armstrong had admitted to using performance-enhancing drugs in the shadow of federal criminal investigations by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency and the International Cycling Union. Instead a look into a miraculous human, The Armstrong Lie chronicles the rewriting of history surrounding one iconic manand gives us a glimpse into unprecedented scandal. During the filming of the movie, Gibney found himself with one-of-a-kind access and an insider's look at what happens when one of the world's top athletes falls from grace.

As Armstrong tells Gibney's camera: "I didn't live a lot of lies, but I lived one big one."
