The Yes Men Are Revolting
(Laura Nix & The Yes Men, USA, 2015, 91mins)

For the last 20 years, notorious activists The Yes Men (Mike Bonanno and Andy Bichlbaum) have staged outrageous hoaxes to hijack public dialogue worldwide about the issues of the day. In their third cinematic outing (after The Yes Men and The Yes Men Fix The World), they are now well into their 40s, and their mid-life crises are threatening to drive them out of activism forever – even as they prepare to take on the biggest challenge they’ve ever faced, climate change.

Following their lives for over four years, The Yes Men Are Revolting reveals their creative process, hilarious strategies, and personal conflicts while they juggle the demands of getting older, holding down jobs, and maintaining some shred of personal lives.From villages in Uganda’s Karamoja region to the toxic oil fields in Canada’s tar sands, these iconoclastic revolutionaries take on big oil, lobbyists, Wall Street, and the U.S. government, armed with nothing but thrift-store suits and a lack of shame.

Overcoming personal obstacles to deliver uproarious actions of global significance, The Yes Men deliver a hopeful message about ordinary people breaking through the paralysis to take back their planet.

 

"A much more intimate take on the two heroic activists…the film’s a fascinating look at average guys struggling to strike the right balance between relationships, kids – and, yes, Survivaballs." – FilmMaker Magazine

"Prepare to sit on the edge of your seat." – Huffington Post

"Entertaining mix of agitpop, pranksterism and autobiography." – Variety

 

This event is presented by SF Green Film Festival. Tickets available from Alamo Drafthouse.
