Greenwich Entertainment Sets Theatrical Release Of Documentary Feature “Hockeyland”

Greenwich Entertainment, a leading distributor of independent films, has acquired North American distribution rights to the critically-acclaimed documentary feature Hockeyland about rival high school hockey teams in Minnesota’s North Country, one of the breeding grounds for hockey greats who go onto to collegiate and professional play, including the National Hockey League (NHL).

Greenwich Entertainment has set a September 9 theatrical release for the film, starting in Minneapolis and other Midwest cities, before expanding in the U.S. and Canada. A digital release will follow in October.

Hockeyland is directed by Tommy Haines, produced by Tommy Haines, Andrew Sherburne, and JT Haines, and executive produced by Carson Kipfer. The film has played leading documentary film festivals including DOC NYC, Big Sky, Seattle, Milwaukee, RiverRun and more.

Here’s the official description of the film:
Northern Minnesota is felt in the bones. The deep chill of a long winter, the toll of a day in the mine, bruises from the hockey rink. But times they are a changin’, and toughness is no longer the only measure of a man. In this unforgiving country, senior boys in rival communities—one emerging dynasty, one with a fabled past—skate for a last chance to etch their names into local lore. Lightning fast on-ice action is paired with a patient observational approach to examine these two communities and their teen heroes through debilitating injuries, off-ice troubles, family health concerns, and the expectations of being a future star in the NHL. These boys must keep small-town pressures, adolescent distractions, and rising testosterone under control to pursue glory with the help of their coaches’ traditional fiery speeches and new mindfulness techniques. In America’s far reaches, this is a portrait of young men on the brink. This is Hockeyland.

“From Where They Stood” Berlinale Documentary Release Set

Greenwich Entertainment announced today the U.S. and Canadian release of the documentary “From Where They Stood” (À pas aveugles) written and directed by Christophe Cognet. The North American theatrical release begins July 15, 2022 at NYC’s Film Forum followed by additional major US & Canadian cities.

A 2021 Berlinale Forum premiere, From Where They Stood went on to win the Spirit of Freedom Award for Best Documentary at the 2021 Jerusalem Film Festival. The US festival premiere was at the 2022 New York Jewish Film Festival at Lincoln Center.

“From Where They Stood” was produced by Raphaël Pillosio. Greenwich’s Edward Arentz negotiated the acquisition with Fionnuala Jamison of MK2 International on behalf of the filmmakers.

“In contrast to today when thankfully evidence of war crimes and genocide can be gathered often remotely and disseminated worldwide with startling precision and detail, the individuals who took these photos risked everything to pierce the cloak of secrecy that surrounded the genocidal horror of the Nazi murder machine and remain a testimony to their courage and defiance in the face of totalitarian evil,” says Greenwich’s co-president Edward Arentz.

Here’s the film official synopsis:
It’s not widely known but somehow a handful of prisoners in Nazi concentration camps managed to take clandestine photographs of the hell the Nazis were hiding from the world.

Either smuggled out or hidden and retrieved only after the war, Director Christophe Cognet retraces the footsteps of these courageous men and women in a quest to unearth the circumstances and the stories behind their photographs.
