The documentary film VALIANT features franchise owner Bill Foley; General Manager, George McPhee; Golden Knights players: Marc-André Fleury, William Karlsson, Jonathan Marchessault, Deryk Engelland, Ryan Reaves; and entertainers Wayne Newton and Lil Jon; along with powerful interviews with Las Vegas residents, law officers and first responders to the tragedy.
VALIANT begins by chronicling the creation of the National Hockey League’s expansion team Vegas Golden Knights by entrepreneur Bill Foley. Featuring the awarding of the franchise in 2016, and selecting their players including Marc-André Fleury from the Pittsburgh Penguins during the Expansion Draft, the Golden Knights were introduced to Las Vegas during their home games in the 2017 NHL preseason. Then, on October 1, 2017, Las Vegas was shattered by tragedy, as a mass shooting occurred on the Las Vegas Strip only days before the home opener of the Golden Knights’ inaugural season.
Sparking a growing sense of pride in their grieving city, the Vegas Golden Knights went on to win their first home game, beginning a streak that made them the first team in NHL history to start an inaugural season winning eight of their first nine games. Ultimately, the Vegas Golden Knights enthralled the hockey world with their historic performance while capturing the hearts of the people of Las Vegas and forging an unbreakable connection between the team and its city.
VALIANT is produced by Sterling Productions in association with Osmosis Films and NHL Original Productions. The director is Cruz Angeles and his credits include Sundance Film Festival Don’t Let Me Drown, and the ESPN 30-for-30 Fernando Nation. VALIANT was shot by Axel Bauman, produced by James Lawler and Virgil Price, edited by Malcolm Hearn, and scored by composer Michael Levey. NHL Chief Content Officer Steve Mayer is also an executive producer.
VALIANT is dedicated to the victims of the shooting of October 1, 2017, their families, their friends, and the heroic First Responders.
