The Cannons

Hockey Has No Color.

Special Screening!  December 3rd at 6:30pm

Q & A with the Director!

The Cannons is a documentary feature film following the lives of two Black teenage hockey players and one legendary coach, in one of America's toughest neighbourhoods: Southeast, Washington DC. Part coming of age story, part social-political commentary on the Black American experience, the film chronicles the Fort Dupont Cannons, one of America's only predominately Black hockey teams, as they must overcome the challenges of life on and off the ice.

The Cannons - FILM REVIEW

John Fink,

"Hoffner’s straightforward vérité approach spends most of its time in the present, apart from a joyous remembrance from alumni players including men and women who credit Coach Neal with giving them structure and creating a sense of belonging on the team. For Henderson, it was never truly about the past, encouraging players to leave it behind on the ice, and while the film looks back it’s also forward-looking—Henderson and Featherstone hope to develop the next generation of community leaders, good parents, and just all-around good people in neighborhoods where so much can go wrong."
