Hello Destroyer
Available on CBC Gem, Tubi TV, iTunes
Timely, uncompromising, and devastating, Hello Destroyer raises deeply troubling questions about how we teach boys to become adults, particularly within the context of our national obsession: hockey. A new recruit on the minor league Prince George Warriors, Tyson Burr, is an enforcer whose primary tasks are digging the puck out of corners and protecting more skilled players. He is painfully shy and inarticulate, the product of a world that values aggression over emotional development. Spurred on by his cliché-spewing coach, Tyson inadvertently injures another player and soon discovers that the "family" he has grown up in is a lot more self-serving and cutthroat than he thought.
