First Look: Behind the Scenes of Red Army With Director Gabe Polsky
New BitTorrent Bundle explores hockey and politics in Soviet Russia, with archival content and unreleased footage from Red Army, in theaters January 23.
Red Army (Sony Pictures Classics) documents the rise and fall 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.
“Director Gabe Polsky has made a dramatic, entertaining movie about historic heroes on the ice. ‘Red Army’ has the same level of depth and freshness as ‘Inside Job’ and ‘Fog of War’.
Tom Bernard, Co-President, Sony Pictures Classics

Each BitTorrent Bundle allows artists to distribute content directly to the Internet. And each Bundle comes with a key. Fans can unlock artist content with an email address, or a direct payment to the artist. The idea is to make each song a storefront, and each file more valuable, every time it’s shared.
