God Save Justin Trudeau is not a boxing movie. Nor an authorized biography. It’s a documentary about the art of politics in the 21st century.
God Save Justin Trudeau follows MP Justin Trudeau, the future Prime Minister of Canada, and Senator Patrick Brazeau as they train for the boxing match that will change their lives. A metaphor for the ongoing political struggle between the Liberals and Conservatives since the founding of Canada, God Save Justin Trudeau is both an intimate portrait of a young politician and a prime example of politics as a spectacle.
While attempting to draw connections between boxing and politics, filmmakers Guylaine Maroist and Eric Ruel captured far more than the charity event for which so much ink was spilled in Canadian media.
