Written and directed by Gabe Polsky, Red Army is a feature documentary about 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 features a playful and fun score by composer Christophe Beck (Frozen, The Edge of Tomorrow) and Leo Birenberg. The sounds are largely inspired by Russian folk music. The soundtrack dives you right into the mood!
