Fighting on Ice – Sports Documentary on Indian Ice Hockey Team | Kala Ghoda
The Short Screenings is a project of CineShorts Film Appreciation Club where we showcase multiple Indian Short Films on a fortnightly basis. The screenings are followed by an interactive Q&A session with the makers, cast/crew where you get a chance to meet, interact & know more from the people involved in the filming process.
Fighting on Ice is not an ordinary sports documentary - it's hard hitting and real - revealing the true fight between passion and Struggle.Fighting on ice follows the life of the team, the association and innumerable passionate people - who believe in the future of ice hockey in India, who believe in themselves and their dreams and who's passion for this sport is beyond the closed doors of the government. Without official support, without funding, without equipment, ice hockey is still surviving - primarily because of this fabulous group of people who are giving it their all - just to make their country proud!
It's time India gets to know about these fabulous sportsmen - who's undying spirit and positivity, to put India's name on the game of ice hockey - is something to be proud of!
The filming would be followed by a live interaction from the Director himself Mithun Bajaj on his journey filming one of the most unknown games existence in India.
