87 Lafayette Street NYC 10013 - (212) 966-4510
Told with the kind of intimacy that can only be achieved with years of filming, Strongman follows the dreams and heartbreaking humanity of Stanless Steel—the only man alive who can bend a penny with his fingers—as he struggles to gain control of a world that seems constantly out of his grasp.
Winner of the Grand Jury Prize for Best Documentary at Slamdance 2009, this critically-acclaimed feature documentary that took ten years to make by fiercely independent means, is a labor of love and what cinema verité dreams are made of. After limited viewings in NYC, Strongman hasn't been available to the public, so don't miss out!
"A strange and strangely beautiful movie" Variety
"I watched with quiet fascination" Roger Ebert
"An outsider tale of lilting poignancy" New York Times
Zach Levy has been a country music disc jockey, a patented inventor, a cameraman for Oprah and 60 Minutes, and is the creator of the best-selling Bush Cards. He is a graduate of Columbia University, and Strongman is his first feature film.
