RED ARMY

FILM CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE
RETURN
Executive produced by Werner Herzog and Jerry Weintraub, the hugely acclaimed Red Army reveals the untold story of the most dominating sporting dynasty in history: the Red Army ice hockey team. Formed by the Soviet Union in the mid-1950s, the team would dominate the sport for nearly 40 years and act as a display of world-class power and propaganda. Using archival footage from both sides of the Iron Curtain, Gabe Polsky’s terrifically entertaining and fascinating documentary depicts the rise and fall of this national institution from the perspective of its renowned captain, Slava Fetisov. His rebellion against the Soviet political system would highlight the incestuous link between sport and politics, while paving the way for change for generations of Russians. Received with huge critical acclaim at the Cannes Film Festival 2014, Red Army is a revelatory look at the Cold War that goes far beyond the ice rink, providing a vivid insight into the cultural and political tensions that defined the era.
