Yes Men Fix the World at NWFF — Nov 27 – Dec 03 (Tickets HERE)
(Andy Bichlbaum, Mike Bonanno, 2008, USA, 35mm, 89 min)
Yes Man Andy Bichlbaum in person opening weekend! Special benefit event with additional guests opening night.
Join the Yes Men, Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonanno, as they battle the free market mentality with their politically charged hijinks. Their method: select a corporation they don’t like, set up a fake website and wait until they’re invited to speak at an event as a representative of said despised company. This time around, Andy and Mike take on Dow Chemical, Exxon Mobil, Halliburton and the government’s response to Hurricane Katrina. Incorporating vintage cartoons and archival footage, Bichlbaum and Bonanno construct a fast-paced, highly entertaining look at their unique brand of activism. The absurdity of their actions may amuse, but the Yes Men have a serious point to make: business as usual is no longer acceptable.
