Alternative Cinema: The Yes Men Fix the World
(2009), Internationally renowned pranksters The Yes Men have taken on titans of industry, punking Dow Chemical, Exxon Mobile, and Halliburton among many others, and drawing attention to their exploitative business practices. Masters of media manipulation, this hilarious documentary follows the performance artist-activists Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonanno as they explode the myths of free market capitalism one prank at a time. Featuring a sidesplitting cameo from Reggie Watts, this screening will precede a talk by one half of the Yes Men, Igor Vamos (aka Mike Bonanno) the following day.
