#RedArmy Movie’s Gabe Polsky joins “Chuck’s World” tonight at 8p EST to discuss the movie!

red armyFrom Oscar® nominated and Emmy award-winning filmmakers, 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.  Director Gabe Polsky joins Chuck Bastie and Todd Miller tonight at 8p EST to talk about the movie, and his incredible experiences while in Russia, including hopping a ride on Vladimir Putin’s plane!

RED ARMY is an inspiring story about the Cold War played out on the ice rink, and a man who stood up to a powerful system and paved the way for change for generations of Russians.

Gabe Polsky co-directed and produced the award winning and critically acclaimed The Motel Life, starring Emile Hirsch, Dakota Fanning, and Stephen Dorff. Additional producing credits include: Werner Herzog’s Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans, which was named in over 40 top-ten lists of the Best Films in 2009; His Way, an Emmy-nominated documentary released by HBO in 2011; and Little Birds, which was named among the top ten independent films of 2012 by the National Board of Review.

Polsky is adapting the novels Butcher’s Crossing by John Williams, and National Book Award winning Going After Cacciato by Tim O’Brien. Other notable projects in development include critically acclaimed novels Flowers For Algernon by Daniel Keyes, to be produced at Sony as a starring vehicle for Will Smith; and The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov. Polsky has also secured the life rights to Albert Einstein as well as to surfing legend Dorian Doc Paskowitz and his family.
