Shinny: The Hockey in All of Us

Shinny: The Hockey in All of Us

| 1 h 12 min

This feature documentary captures Canada’s favourite sport in its purest form: on the backyard rink, frozen pond, or icy street where it’s played by men and women, boys and girls, retirees and up-and-comers, prime ministers and plumbers. Director David Battistella explores the unwritten codes learned on ponds and backyard rinks, which are passed down from generation to generation. The film shines its spotlight on a few of the millions in Canada who have written their own rules of this much-loved game.
