Strongman (2009) Teaser Trailer
Slamdance Grand Jury Award Winner – Best Documentary Feature. Stanless Steel is the strongest man in the world at bending steel. He can leg press 10,000-pound dump trucks and drive nails through boards with his bare hands. He can even bend a US penny in his fingers-a feat no one else in the world can match. These are not just acts of physical strength but of incredible mental and emotional fortitude. A sweet and genuine person, Stan gets his power from "good thoughts" and believes in the possibilities of change. But as strong as he is, Stan is struggling. As he reaches middle age, career disappointments and personal relationships test him and his ability to cope with his own weaknesses. Shot in a strict vérité style with all the heart and moxie of its subject, Strongman is a funny and endearing tale of one man's determination to lift his life to a higher place.
