International awardwinning filmmaker Adam Scorgie and director Brett Harvey are proud to present the inaugural release of “Ice Guardians”. The Documentary Features interviews with NHL enforcers; Dave Semenko, Joe Kocur, Kevin Westgarth, Scott Parker, and Dave “The Hammer” Schultz to name a few.
Exploring one of the most controversial and provocative positions in the history of sport, ‘Ice Guardians’ journeys into the lives of those who perform what is undoubtedly the toughest job within the National Hockey League today, the enforcer. Very few understand this position and even fewer appreciate what is involved in becoming one. It’s a punishing profession unlike any other, holding little mercy for its candidates on or off the ice. Born out of selfpolicing, a game where 200pound men fly towards each other on metal blades with sticks, the role now finds itself facing the scrutiny of national newspapers, online blogs, and TV newscasts.
Due to its violent nature, it has drawn opinions from both fans and critics alike. But what do we really know? What led to its spectacular rise? What purpose does it serve in the eyes of its beholders and what drives them forward in the face of adversity? Ice Guardians steps beyond the hype and heads directly to the source of the debate… the players themselves. Through their eyes, tough exteriors are shed to reveal the humanity behind a role that struggles to maintain its existence.
After the successful World Premiere screening in Toronto, and sold out Special Event screenings in New York and St. Louis, Ice Guardians is coming to Philadelphia with special support from the Flyers organization. AMC has also picked up the film in 10 markets including the AMC in Cherry Hill, Neshaminy, and Franklin Mills starting a week long run November 25, 2016.
The Philadelphia screening will be at Kimmel Centre – The Perelman Theater, 300 S Broad St, Philadelphia, PA at 7:30pm on November 22nd, 2016. After the screening guest speakers Todd Fedoruk, Bob Kelly and Dave “The Hammer” Schultz will participate in a Q&A.
