Fourth Friday/Films of Vision and Hope
For 20 years, the Yes Men have staged outrageous and hilarious hoaxes to draw international attention to corporate crimes against humanity and the environment. Armed with thrift-store suits and a lack of shame, these iconoclasts lie their way into business and government events to expose the dangers of greed.
Now in their 40s, their mid-life crises are threatening to drive them out of activism – even as they prepare to take on the biggest challenge: climate change. The Yes Men Are Revolting is as much a character study as it is an entertaining depiction of their latest interventions. Revealing the real people behind the ruses, at its heart lies a hopeful message about fighting for change. Watch the trailer…
