Inside Lara Roxx

Hot Docs interview: Mia Donovan, director of ‘Inside Lara Roxx’

In the spring of 2004, 21-year-old Lara Roxx left her hometown of Montreal and headed to L.A to try to make tons of cash in the adult entertainment industry. Within two months of working in this industry she contracted the most virulent form of HIV while performing sex in front of the camera. Inside Lara Roxx, a documentary premiering at this year’s Hot Docs film festival in Toronto, is about the adult movie industry and its impact on a young life.

Video Interview: Edgar Wright and Ellen Wong on ‘Scott Pilgrim vs. The World’

Toronto may get a lot of on-screen time, thanks to the Hollywood productions that are often filmed here, but it’s not very often that the city gets to play itself.

Writer and director Edgar Wright went against the flow though, taking on the big screen adaptation of Bryan Lee O’Malley’s Toronto-centric graphic novel, Scott Pilgrim, which gives our fair city a unique starring role for a change in one of the coolest comic book adaptations of the year.
