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.
Globe & Mail public affairs columnist, author of Red Machine and McMaster University alumnus Lawrence Martin will be speaking following the screening.
