‘The Yes Men Are Revolting’ at Spectrum 8
The Spectrum is hosting a one time showing of The Yes Men Are Revolting on Wednesday June 24 at 6:30pm.
The Yes Men, described as “culture jamming activist duo and network of supporters” have pulled off an impressive amount of activism focused projects that’s stirred up a lot of dialogue. It’s great to see the Spectrum showing their latest work.
For the last 20 years, notorious activists the Yes Men (Mike Bonanno and Andy Bichlbaum) have staged outrageous hoaxes to hijack public dialogue worldwide about the issues of the day. 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. Frustrated by each other, and worried they can’t make a difference anymore, how can they keep fighting the world’s most urgent threat?
