Thirty-five years ago, Fredericton teacher, Philip Sexsmith, formed an after school program at what was then Nashwaaksis Junior High, that would become the sensation known as Characters Incorporated.  “We Are Characters Incorporated” is a documentary that celebrates the legacy of the group and the creativity and devotion of its founder.  The feature-length film is narrated and co-directed by former Characters member, Kirk Pennell.  It is written and produced by filmmaker Christine McLean.

Filmed over a two-year period, it revisits the heyday of the group, its tours to the United States, Europe, Japan and Australia and reflects on how the group became ambassadors of Canadian culture.  The film also revisits many of the 300 New Brunswickers who were members and reveals where they are now and how their lives were changed by Characters.
