LOS ANGELES (AP/CBS4) — “Icarus” has won the best documentary feature Academy Award.

The film tells the story of a doping program used by Russian athletes through accounts from the man who says he oversaw it.

Director Bryan Fogel said in his acceptance speech that he hopes the film is a wake-up call about the dangers of Russia.

Fogel was born in Denver and graduated from East High School and the University of Colorado at Boulder.
