Tough, gritty and unexpectedly funny, STRONGMAN is an intimate verité portrait of Stanley “Stanless Steel” Pleskun, The Strongest Man in the World at Bending Steel and Metal. Shot over several years, the film follows Stanless Steel’s everyday life — from bending pennies with his fingers to lifting dump trucks — as he struggles to gain control of a world that seems constantly out of his grasp. An acclaimed film about faith, believing in yourself and never giving up, STRONGMAN won the Grand Jury Prize at the Slamdance Film Festival.
