TORONTO and LOS ANGELES, July 29, 2021 /CNW/ – UNINTERRUPTED Canada in partnership with DreamCrew’s subsidiary, DreamCrew Entertainment, The SpringHill Company and Bell Media today announced the production of a full-length original documentary feature titled BLACK ICE. The film will explore the journey of Black hockey players from the creation of The Colored Hockey League of the Maritimes to the modern-day NHL, highlighting their often overlooked and marginalized contributions to the game.
