Errol Morris (The Unknown Known), Lucy Walker (The Crash Reel), Alex Gibney (The Armstrong Lie, We Steal Secrets: The Story of Wikileaks), Morgan Neville (20 Feet From Stardom), Teller (Tim's Vermeer), James Toback (Seduced and Abandoned) join THR's film editor Gregg Kilday to discuss the art of making nonfiction films.
Alex Gibney's documentary on Lance Armstrong's eighth Tour de France victory and eventual admission of performance enhancing drug use. The film, from Sony Pictures Classics, is set to be released on Nov. 8.
In 2009 Alex Gibney was hired to make a film about Lance Armstrong’s comeback to cycling. The project was shelved when the doping scandal erupted, and re-opened after Armstrong’s confession. “The Armstrong Lie” picks up in 2013 and presents a riveting, insider's view of the unraveling of one of the most extraordinary stories in the history of sports. As Lance Armstrong himself says: “I didn’t live a lot of lies, but I lived one big one.”
