Black Ice: Film Screening & Panel Discussion

February 22 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

ABOUT THE FILM

Winner of TIFF’s prestigious 2022 People’s Choice Documentary Award and honored as one of Canada’s Top Ten films of 2022, Black Ice is an incisive, urgent documentary that examines the history of anti-Black racism in hockey, from the segregated leagues of the 19th century to professional leagues today, where Black athletes continue to struggle against bigotry, despite their little-known contributions to the history of the development of the sport. Black Ice also examines the role of Black players in Canadian hockey, from pre-NHL contributions to today’s game. Directed by Oscar nominee Hubert Davis (Hardwood), executive produced by LeBron James, Drake, and Maverick Carter, and produced by Vinay Virmani, Black Ice is a sobering survey of systemic marginalization within one of the world’s most beloved team sports and provides a sense of hope for a more inclusive future.
