Go-Boy!

2019, Documentary

GO-BOY! is a feature documentary examining the true life story of Roger Caron, a jail breaking bank robber who taught himself how to write in prison and went on to win the Governor General’s Award, Canada’s highest literary award.  

 

Filmmaker Rob Lindsay examines how the power of Caron’s words not only exposed the brutality and depravity of the Canadian prison system, but has also had a lasting and timeless influence on generations to come.

"...one of the most engaging docs you’ll see all year"
