“Willie”- World Premiere April 29 at Hot Docs
The biopic “Willie,” about Willie O’Ree, who broke the NHL’s color barrier in 1958, made its World Premiere at the Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival on April 29. Working with Producer Bryant McBride and Director Laurence Mathieu-Leger on the release of this amazing film about an extraordinary individual has been a labor of love. Bryant, and the NHL Diversity program he created, was my Master’s Thesis client at the Harvard Kennedy School. I had the privilege of working with him, and getting to know Willie, while working on the project and then joining his team at the NHL. To see that 20 years later, Willie has been inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame and his amazing story will be told on screen is surreal. Stay tuned for more information on upcoming screenings.
