'Red Army' Trailer Examines Hockey And Life Behind The Iron Curtain

"Red Army" is one of the year's most talked about documentaries, with critics raving after its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival. Examining the Soviet Union's Red Army ice hockey team's Cold War era domination of the sport, the film gives a behind-the-scenes look at the team and the culture surrounding the USSR.

"Told from the perspective of its captain Slava Fetisov, the story portrays his transformation from national hero to political enemy," a press release explains. "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."

Also, at 40 seconds, there are a couple bears holding hockey sticks, on ice, playing hockey. Watch the trailer above. "Red Army" premieres Jan. 23, 2015. More clips from the film can be found on the official "Red Army" YouTube page.
