The Yes Men: Changing the World One Prank at a Time (2003)
FILM SCREENING w/ Following Discussion

The film revolves around "The Yes Men"—two anti-globalization activists, under the aliases Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonanno—who impersonate spokespeople for the WTO and affiliated corporations, in order to secretly lampoon and satirize these organizations with elaborate ruses and fraudulent announcements of ridiculous corporate decisions, in front of live, unsuspecting audiences (usually comprising businesspeople, university student bodies, and/or the press). The film details the two activists' involvement in hoaxes targeting SimCopter, the 2000 G. W. Bush presidential campaign, McDonald's, and, most prominently, the WTO.

This screening is part of our series "Documentaries for Change", held every second Friday in the Vic Park MiniLab. A list of upcoming films are found here: https://www.enkel.co/program/documentaries-for-change/
