“Fascinating, funny, heroic, moving and may even make hockey fans out of nonbelievers.” John Anderson – Newsday
The Gallatin Ice Foundation teams up with Bozeman Film Society to score a winning goal, bringing Gabe Polsky’s extraordinary and fascinating film Red Army to the Ellen Theatre on Saturday, May 9th. This award-winning film tells the Cold War era story of the Russian National Hockey team, its star player Slava Fetisov, and how the course of international hockey was changed through courage and dedication. A poignant film that works in the most unexpected way, touching hockey fanatics and film lovers with equal power, the New York Times calles Red Army a “stirring, crazy story—a Russian novel of Tolstoyan sweep and absurdity. ”Time Magazine says: “this playful, poignant film presents a human story t hat transcends decades, borders and ideologies.”
The Gallatin Ice Foundation (GIF) is a 501c3 non-profit organization leading fundraising efforts for the ‘Raise the Ice Barn’ campaign – a project to build a year-round refrigerated ice skating rink at the Gallatin County Fairgrounds. Expanding Bozeman’s recreational and competitive skating opportunities will benefit current and new ice-enthusiasts including youth hockey players and figure skaters who regularly log hundred of miles each year traveling to other Montana cities that offer available ice-time.
This appropriate for all-ages evening kicks off at 7:30pm and features guest appearances by Bozeman Senior A Stingers and Bozeman Icedogs Mascots!
