Hello once again to our good friends in TORONTO and VANCOUVER! Looking for a great documentary about a great winter sport? Then look no further than RED ARMY, and Dork Shelf and Mongrel Media have teamed up to give away pairs of run-of-engagement passes to see the film on us!
RED ARMY is the story of the Soviet Union and the most successful dynasty in sports history: the Red Army hockey team. Told from the perspective of its captain Slava Fetisov, the story portrays his transformation from national hero to political enemy. From the USSR to Russia, the film examines how sport mirrors social and cultural movements and parallels the rise and fall of the Red Army team with the Soviet Union. RED ARMY is an inspiring story about the Cold War played out on the ice rink, and a man who stood up to a powerful system and paved the way for change for generations of Russians.
Red Army opens in Toronto and Vancouver this Friday, but here’s how you can win a pair of tickets! Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org with RED ARMY in the subject line! Please include a MAILING ADDRESS in your email. Please only one email entry per household. Multiple entries will be deleted.
