Don’t worry world! We always support watching documentaries legally and many of the films we recommend on Influence Film Club are available where you live too. We suggest using your preferred method for watching a film – such as searching iTunes, Amazon, Netflix, VOD platforms (video-on-demand), or renting/buying a DVD.

Share Icarus with your community. The filmmakers hope that the film shows exactly how corrupt the system is and that it will serve as a rallying cry for athletes to change it. Let’s not disappoint them.
Show your support of whistleblowers. Those who come forward, like Grigory Rodchenkov, need to know they will be taken seriously and protected for their disclosures. Groups like the Courage Foundation support and fund raise for the legal and public defense of whistleblowers who risk life and liberty for the greater good.
Know what agencies are leading the fight against doping. Organizations such as WADA (The World Anti-Doping Agency) and the International Olympic Committee have put together rigorous “performance enhancing drug tests” to help stifle dopers looking to gain an advantage.
Speak up and report doping. WADA’s report page allows you to “report any alleged Anti-Doping Rule Violation, any alleged World Anti-Doping Code (Code) non-compliance violation, or any act or omission that could undermine the fight against doping.”
