“Who said that a political film can’t be sweet, too?” —Nick Allen, RogerEbert.com
For two decades, the Yes Men have pulled off spectacular media hoaxes to expose corporate crimes. These pranksters have played on the gullible media’s lack of fact checking to launch elaborate, hilarious, and poignant protests and interventions unmasking unfair policies, greed, and threats to human existence. With their sights tuned to environmental concerns, they have a monumental task in front of them.
Now, these hilarious activists are approaching middle age, struggling to stay inspired in their fight against climate change. Can they get it together before the ice caps melt? 2014, U.S., video, 94 minutes. Rated R.
Co-presented with the Waterfront Botanical Gardens.
