LANCE, our ESPN 30 for 30 documentary about Lance Armstrong, will have its world premiere next month at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival. The two-part film will be featured in the "Special Events" slate alongside documentaries about Hillary Clinton, director William Friedkin, and Lin-Manuel Miranda's Freestyle Love Supreme improv group.
Directed by Emmy winner Marina Zenovich, LANCE is a deeply personal examination of one of the world’s most controversial figures — a man who’s both winner and loser, saint and sinner. Zenovich gained unprecedented access to Armstrong's world, and paints a psychological portrait that is a powerful study of that 21st century phenomenon: the celebrity who falls spectacularly and publicly from grace.
Zenovich is the director of the two-time Emmy Award-winning Roman Polanski documentary Wanted and Desired as well as the critically acclaimed Robin Williams: Come Inside My Mind. In 2017, her documentary Water & Power: A California Heist was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance.
Five All's Douglas Banker executive produces alongside Michael Hughes of DLP Media and Chad Mountain. Zenovich and P.G. Morgan produce.
This is the second 30 for 30 documentary that Five All has produced for ESPN, following this fall's Dennis Rodman: For Better and Worse.
