description

Comedy troupe The Yes Men stage phony events and press releases in an effort to bring attention to environmental dangers and corporate greed. Following up the 2003 and 2009 documentaries, THE YES MEN ARE REVOLTING follows activists Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonnano as they continue to punk the unquestioning media, large corporations and government officials. In addition to chronicling their elaborate hoaxes, the documentary explores if The Yes Men can continue to sustain a life of activism in
middle age with jobs, relationships and children to consider.
