But after the balloon crash-lands just before the West German border, the Stasi find traces of the attempted escape and immediately launch an investigation.

LONG ISLAND PREMIERE! Special Q&A with director GABE POLSKY and STEVEN WARSHAW.

An eccentric American marketeer journeys into the heart of “The Wild East” – Russia in the 90’s. From award-winning filmmaker, Gabe Polsky, comes a wild and captivating documentary highlighting a pivotal moment in U.S.-Russian relations in a lawless era when Hollywood and advertisers meet oligarchs and gangsters, and multiple murders went unsolved. Complete with strippers and live bears serving beer on a hockey rink, its assembly is always lively, aimed at engaging viewers with or without any interest in hockey.

Shortly after the collapse of the Soviet Union, the Pittsburgh Penguins and the famed Red Army hockey team formed a joint venture that redefined what was possible in the new Russia. Eccentric marketing whiz, Steven Warshaw, is sent to Moscow and tasked to transform the team into the greatest show in Russia, attracting some big name celebrity investors like Michael J. Fox and Mario Lemieux, and advertising along the way. Director Gabe Polsky’s “Red Penguins” tells the true story of capitalism and opportunism run amok in Moscow.

“Red Penguins has the kind of stranger-than-fiction appeal that could lure both hockey fans and the puckless”. – Dennis Harvey, Variety Magazine.

Special Q&A guests:

GABE POLSKY is an award-winning American film director, writer and producer. Known for Genius (2017), Red Army (2014) and In Search of Greatness (2018), his feature documentary Red Penguins, premiered to broad acclaim at the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival.  “It’s a story about Americans going to Russia, trying to adapt and survive in a completely different culture – behaviors and experiences alien to them. Making matters more complicated, Russia in the 90’s was changing radically by the day. But still, there was a window of hope and optimism between US and Russia that has since disappeared. I wanted to explore how our two cultures relate to one another and what lies at the core of it. The most fascinating aspect in telling this story was thinking about what it means in the context of today and for the future.” – Gabe Polsky.

STEVEN WARSHAW was the Pittsburgh Penguins man in charge on the ground in Moscow. With a “special talent for generating firestorms in arenas,” Warshaw was instrumental in the success of the Russian Penguins and was asked to stay after the venture fell apart. He did not. A seasoned marketing and branding executive that has worked for, advised, and enhanced businesses in the sports and entertainment world – he is currently the President of Universal Sports Marketing.

Tickets for “Red Penguins” are $10 for Film Society members, and $15 for non-members when purchased in advance. Tickets are $20 at the door. All tickets are subject to a $1 ticketing fee. No refunds or credits.

Tickets can be ordered by phone at 516-829-2570 or online.
