Nothing Sacred

Top of page

Aislin and Serge Chapleau, political cartoonists for The Montreal Gazette and La Presse, have been skewering politicians for thirty years. But who are these biting satirists? Nothing Sacred paints revealing portraits through interviews with the men's friends, families, colleagues, and even a few of their favourite victims (Gilles Duceppe and Louise Beaudoin). Filmmaker Garry Beitel looks at their lives and careers as the two friends exercise their craft between major news events, the U.S. invasion of Iraq and a provincial election. Featuring many of their classic cartoons, the documentary pays tribute to gifted iconoclasts whose hilarious characters have seeped into our collective consciousness.

2003, 51 min 50 s
