Hot Docs 2016: Aim for the Roses

Aim_for_the_Roses_1small

One of the interesting trends to emerge out of this year’s Hot Docs Festival is films that blur the lines of traditional documentary filmmaking. We are seeing examples that play with a blend of fact and fiction and examples that are experimental in how they present their material, deviating from the standard formula. John Bolton’s Aim for the Roses is an unusual film that pushes boundaries of what it means to be a documentary film. It pairs several unlikely elements in an effort to be an ode to a composer and to a legendary Canadian daredevil.
