Black Ice

Winner of the Toronto International Film Festival’s prestigious 2022 People’s Choice Documentary Award, Black Ice is an incisive, urgent documentary that examines the history of anti-Black racism in hockey, from the segregated leagues of the 19th century to professional leagues today, where Black athletes continue to struggle against bigotry, despite their contributions to the history of the development of the sport. Black Ice also examines the role of Black players in Canadian hockey, from pre-NHL contributions to today’s game. Black Ice is a sobering survey of systemic marginalization within one of the world’s most beloved team sports. It provides a sense of hope for a more inclusive future.
