RED PENGUINS

2019 Alumni

Expected to Attend: Director Gabe Polsky, subject Steven Warshaw

NYC PREMIERE Filmmaker Gabe Polsky was on the 2014 DOC NYC Short List for Red Army, his entertaining history of Soviet hockey players migrating to the United States. Now he examines a reverse trend after the Soviet Union’s collapse, when American hustlers tried bringing capitalism to Moscow by investing in its hockey team. This dark comedy contains strippers, gangsters and live bears serving beer on ice. It’s a lively history lesson that helps us understand relations between the US and Russia today.
