As the Crow Flies
Directed by Tess Girard

We adore this doc about a group of wannabe Royal Canadian Air Cadets who are soaring for their wings. They’re just seventeen, if you know what we mean, but the way they dream is just beyond compare. Director Girard has transformed what might be a conventional aspirational story about reaching for the stars into something utterly charmed and magical. Her camera attends to these youngsters with admirable respect, allowing us to appreciate their unique personalities, hope and fears. Shortly into the film, you are dreaming right along with them, living out the drama of their potential. It doesn’t get any more feel-good than this loving, intimate portrait of some pretty wonderful young Canadians.
