The Hecklers

| 58 min

This documentary offers a witty and engaging view of Canada's history through the unique perspectives of its political cartoonists. Duncan Macpherson, Robert LaPalme, Aislin, and others chime in on the most notable cartoons from more than 50 artists while we also enjoy the reactions of the targets. As one cartoonist proclaims, "A picture is worth a thousand words. A cartoon, well done, is worth a thousand pictures."
