CineFestival: Junior - A season behind the scenes of Canadian junior hockey
Treated and hero-worshipped like professionals, the junior players are already stars who are allowed only a small margin of error. But they are also teenagers who are playing for their future from the age of 16. Hockey becomes for them a rite of passage towards adulthood, where they are propelled at breakneck speed. From the shareholders to the coaches, not forgetting the agents and recruiters, they all have their eyes fixed on this elite, among whom only very few players will succeed in having a real professional career.
A film by Isabelle Lavigne & Stéphane Thibault
