The Hell of '63 by Steven de Jong
Hell of '63, The - the story of four ice skaters on that fateful freezing day in 1963

Hell of '63, The

Four stories typify the spirit of the 10,000 skaters on that fateful freezing day in 1963.

This film is based on the true facts of that fateful day in 1963 when, due to plunging temperatures and rough terrain, thousands of skaters suffered frostbite and shocking injuries. Only a small number would cross the finish-line, but for those who did, it was to be a life-changing event! (108’, 35mm)
