Bending Steel (feature documentary)

Director|Writer|Camera: Dave Carroll  Producer|Director of Photography: Ryan Scafuro

On a cold February day, a man walks along Coney Island’s boardwalk. He remembers his last visit here as a boy and can’t help but feel the change in atmosphere. The air is devoid of amusement; stores are locked up tight for winter, rides covered and still. The frigid wind whipping off the Atlantic stings his face and the warm rays of sunlight are as distant as his memories. “It’s going to be a very different place in the summertime…”

“Bending Steel” is a deeply moving and inspiring documentary from filmmakers Dave Carroll and Ryan Scafuro, exploring the life of 43 year-old Chris Schoeck, a Queens, NY native training to become a professional Oldetime Strongman.  The story follows Chris’ journey from his early days training in his small basement storage unit to his very first performance on the big stage at New York’s historic Coney Island.

Bending Steel is a feature length documentary film releasing in 2014.
