One of last year’s documentaries that screened at the Sundance Film Festival 2017 caught the attention of Indie Entertainment (News) Magazine. The subject matter was explosive and fascinating as it had the potential, like may documentaries, to turn an industry, and in this case, a country upside down.

There are important subjects in documentary stories that are fascinating and sometimes ground shaking. That is why we love documentaries so much. Informational, educational and altering with learning opportunities to change lives and rewrite history.

This week the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced its official 2018 nominees. On the list, and not to our surprise, was ICARUS. Before Oscar nominations were announced on Jan 23, 2018; Indie Entertainment Magazine’s – Sundance 2018 Print Edition, ran a special editorial article about Icarus. We were fortunate enough to have two-time Olympian and Head Coach of Brigham Young University Track and Field, contributing writer (Ed Eyestone), give his opinion on the documentary.

For those of you that did not attend the Sundance Film Festival and were not able obtain a print copy, of our Sundance Print Edition, here is the original editorial piece.
