The special event will be hosted by members of the Red Wings Alumni who will be on hand to mingle with the crowd and sign copies of the DVD's. Produced by Keith Faimie, Bill Evo and Visionalist Entertainment Productions, the feature takes the viewer into the lives of many of the Detroit Red Wing Alumni players as they journey to Russia where they played a seven game series. Amidst the picturesque backdrop of Moscow and other amazing cities, the Alumni face several players from the 1972 Canada Cup series including Alexander Yakushev, Yuri Liapkin, and Vladimir Lutchenko.
"We are proud to be part of this exciting charitable event. Director Keith Famie captured something very rare in this unique look into the lives of these charismatic hockey players," said Paul Glantz, President of Emagine Entertainment, Inc.
Tom Celani of Luna Entertainment and Associate Executive Producer of the film commented, "It's a story that I believe should be told. These are guys that skate weekly not for the money, but for charity and their community. The fact that they went to Russia to represent the United States makes it even more exciting. Detroit hockey fans will love it!"
Tickets for the event are $20.00 and include the BIG SCREEN DEBUT of the special 90-minute show, a copy of the DVD which includes the documentary show, the director's cut of out-takes and the CD with the theme song written by Bill Evo - "It Ain't Over Til It's Over."
