Catch “Ice Guardians” Vancouver Premier with Gino Odjick and Powell River-born Director
Powell River-born film director Brett Harvey, who directed on the film Ice Guardians (which Newsweek is calling one of their “Top 10 Favourite Documentaries for 2016”), will possibly be making a special appearance in Vancouver for a screening of his film at the Rio Theatre.
(Fun fact: Brett also appeared on our list of “7 people who are totally famous in Powell River.”)
ICE GUARDIANS explores 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 fewer yet appreciate what is involved in becoming one. 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.
Meet Gino Odjick!
Following this screening of Ice Guardians, there will be a special Q&A with the Vancouver Canucks’ own Gino Odjick, as well as the filmmakers. Partial proceeds from this event to be donated to the Gino Odjick Foundation.
