The Yes Men Are Revolting
For the last 20 years, notorious activists the Yes Men have staged outrageous and hilarious hoaxes to draw international attention to corporate crimes against humanity and the environment. Armed with nothing but thrift-store suits and a lack of shame, these iconoclastic revolutionaries lie their way into business events and government functions to expose the dangers of letting greed run our world.
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. More than the first two films, "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.
