This is a film that embraces “hockey is for everyone” while still addressing the systemic racial constructs that has resulted in the isolation of generations of Black hockey players. But most of all, BLACK ICE is meant to expose the truth about racism in the sport at every level, and offer a constructive vision for the future of Black contribution on the ice. There is nothing stopping these young men and women from reshaping the culture of hockey and inciting a movement to confront racialized barriers together.
