RÉVOLUTION SUR GLACE - LA SÉRIE DU SIÈCLE '72 (STF)
September 2022 marked the 50th anniversary of the 1972 Summit Series, the iconic hockey battle that pitted the best players from Canada against the best from the Soviet Union at the height of the Cold War. The series was a defining event in Canadian history.

While other films have looked at the ’72 Summit Series from the players’ point of view, ICE-BREAKER enlarges the canvas to tell the story from the unique perspectives of a diverse cast of participants: diplomats, NHL hockey legends, Soviet players, journalists, fans, broadcasters, business leaders and Team Canada management. All of them reveal untold stories about what happened before, during and after September ’72 and the enduring legacy today. Wayne Gretzky, Ron Maclean, Harnarayan Singh, Angela James, Mike Keenan, Brian Conacher,  Alan Eagleson and Russian hockey legends Vladislav Tretiak, Alexander Yakushev and Boris Mikhailov, all bring their colourful highly engaging perspectives to the film.

The 95 minute documentary is based on Montreal director & co-producer Robbie Hart’s original concept and based in part on Gary J. Smith’s highly acclaimed novel ‘Ice War Diplomat’. The film is unlike anything ever done on the subject, uniting cinematic and evocative landscapes, poetic narratives and behind the scenes politics, as well as exclusive access to Terry Mosher’s (Aislin) iconic Moscow cartoons and the historic 1972 photos by Frank Lennon.

The world is a mysterious place when seen through the eyes of an animal.

But not even for a moment does he lose his innocence.

BARDO, FALSE CHRONICLE OF HANDFUL OF TRUTHS (STA)
Five-time Academy Award®-winner Alejandro G. Iñárritu brings us BARDO, FALSE CHRONICLE OF HANDFUL OF TRUTHS. BARDO is an epic, visually stunning and immersive experience set against the intimate and moving journey of Silverio, a renowned Mexican journalist and documentary filmmaker living in Los Angeles, who, after being named the recipient of a prestigious international award, is compelled to return to his native country, unaware that this simple trip will push him to an existential limit. The folly of his memories and fears have decided to pierce through the present, filling his everyday life with a sense of bewilderment and wonder. With both emotion and abundant laughter, Silverio grapples with universal yet intimate questions about identity, success, mortality, the history of Mexico and the deeply emotional familial bonds he shares with his wife and children. Indeed, what it means to be human in these very peculiar times.
