Another New Trailer for Gabe Polsky's USSR Hockey Doc 'Red Army'
"I was happy kid. I play game. I play hockey."

The doc has been playing at film festivals–see the first trailer–all summer, from Cannes to Telluride, and will be hitting US theaters in January next year. In the meantime, this trailer has arrived to remind you that this doc is awesome and you will want to see it, even if you're a big hockey nerd and know this story already. It's so much fun, and fascinating, as it lifts the Iron Curtain and takes us inside Russia during the Cold War. How is their hockey always so good? Find out in Red Army.
Here's the latest official US trailer for Gabe Polsky's documentary Red Army, direct from YouTube:
Following the Soviet Union during the height of the Cold War, Gabe Polsky's Red Army tells the story of the nation's famed "Red Army" hockey team through the eyes of its captain Slava Fetisov. Whether he was pitted against enemies in the political arena or on the ice, Fetisov's story provides a rare glimpse behind the Iron Curtain of the 1970s and '80s by mirroring the social and political forces at work in the world around him. Red Army first premiered at the Cannes Film Festival this summer and also played at the Telluride & Toronto Film Festivals. Sony Classics will release the doc in select theaters starting January 22nd, 2015 early next year. Read my review from Cannes and stay tuned for the release of this one. Who's interested?
