FESTIVAL LAUNCH featuring a FREE screening of Aim for the Roses

@ PAVED Arts - 424 20th Street West

PAVED Arts is proud to present a free screening of Aim for the Roses (2016) at the official launch party for the 2017 Strata Festival of New Music.  In 1976, Canadian stuntman Ken Carter declared his intention to jump a mile over the St. Lawrence Seaway in a rocket powered car.  Evel Knievel called it "the daredevil stunt to end all daredevil stunts".  In 2008, Canadian musician Mark Haney declared his intention to pay tribute to Ken Carter in the form of a concept album for solo double bass. The Vancouver Province called it “a daring record”, the Vancouver Sun called it “the most bizarre release of the year” and the Georgia Straight called it “utterly amazing and completely fucking ridiculous”.  In 2011, Canadian filmmaker John Bolton declared his intention to make a "musical docudrama" about both men.  The Globe And Mail called it “audacious”, DOXA called it “glorious” and POV Magazine called it “the wildest, craziest, smartest doc in years”
