11 Dec Aspen Film to Present Screening of ESPN Films Documentary ‘LANCE’
Aspen, CO (December 11, 2020): Aspen Film will present the ESPN Films documentary LANCE, featuring notable athlete Lance Armstrong, from December 18-20. Streaming the film is free with a suggested donation of $10. To stream, viewers can go to AspenFilm.org/Lance. Following the film, there will be a pre-recorded Q&A with Aspen Film’s Executive + Artistic Director Susan Wrubel, Director Marina Zenovich and Armstrong himself.
From acclaimed director Marina Zenovich, LANCE is a fascinating, revealing, comprehensive, chronicle of one of the most inspirational – and then infamous – athletes of all time. Based around extensive interviews and conversations with Lance Armstrong, the two-part, four-hour film tells the story of the cyclist’s rise out of Texas as a young superstar cyclist; his harrowing battle with testicular cancer; his recovery and emergence as a global icon with his seven consecutive Tour de France titles; and then his massive fall after he was exposed in one of the largest doping scandals in history. Armstrong, along with a collection of teammates, friends, rivals, and journalists, all reflect on his story, creating a fascinating character study, capturing a unique chapter of sports history, and insisting the audience make its own interpretations about the many different sides of a complex saga.
