Generation Iron follows top bodybuilders as they train to compete in the Mr. Olympia competition. Directed by Vlad Yudin, Jeff Rona composed the music.
“It took over a year to complete the film – Generation Iron. It was a true journey into the world of professional bodybuilding and a study of the human dedication, stubbornness, emotion, confidence and struggle. The characters in this film are real people, who dedicate their lives to the world’s most intense and misunderstood sport.”
— Vlad Yudin, Director
“But beneath the relentless effort they each put toward this elusive goal, I could also see the quiet fragility of these hyper-masculine icons. And that became the emotional center of the music. Moments of solitude, reflection, and both mental and physical dedication. Yes, it’s also a tense competition – and a big one. The personal stakes here are unimaginable.”
