In a new feature to Aesthetic Magazine, we are proud to announce that we are the new presenting partner for Toronto-based film podcast Contra Zoom. Your host, Dakota Arsenault, goes in depth about everything film; from lists, to reviews, and more!
On this episode we review a selection of films that were selected to air during the 2020 Hot Docs, the premiere Canadian documentary festival based out of Toronto. Unfortunately due to COVID-19, they had to pivot and offered screenings of their films to people at home, thus birthing Hot Docs at Home.
Nathan Sizemore and Katey Cottrill from the horror movie podcast I Hope You Suffer join the show to discuss Leap of Faith: William Friedkin on The Exorcist. Later on music fan Alex Burke comes on to discuss two music documentaries, Keyboard Fantasies: The Beverly Glenn-Copeland Story and Dark City Beneath the Beat. Lastly Dakota does a solo review of In Your Eyes, I See My Country.
