“BIGGER, STRONGER, FASTER*” co-writer-director, Christopher Bell

This film is an exploration into why people use steroids, but we live in a time where steroids are an extremely taboo subject. As we were making the documentary, we were frustrated because we kept hitting roadblocks with people not wanting to talk honestly about their relationship with steroids. Even one of my best friends lied to me on camera.

While we were shooting interviews for the film we would have liked 10 percent more honesty from many of the people involved in the steroid issue. However as we were editing the film, we realized that the fact that people were so secretive about this could be a major theme in the film, and the participation of my family is extra special because of their willingness to talk openly about this issue.
