Mangal Movies: The Yes Men Fix The World

Tuesday, 8 Feb 2011 | 7:00 pm

The Yes MenAndy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonanno are two guys who just can’t take “no” for an answer.

They have an unusual hobby: posing as top executives of corporations they hate. Armed with nothing but thrift-store suits, the Yes Men lie their way into business conferences and parody their corporate targets in ever more extreme ways – basically doing everything that they can to wake up their audiences to the danger of letting greed run our world.

On their journey, the Yes Men act as gonzo journalists, delving deep into the question of why we have given the market more power than any other institution to determine our direction as a society. They visit the twisted (and accidentally hilarious) underworld of the free-market think tanks, where they figure out a way to defeat the logic that’s destroying our planet. And as they appear on the BBC before 300 million viewers, or before 1000 New Orleans contractors alongside Mayor Ray Nagin, the layers of lies are peeled back to reveal the raw heart of truth – a truth that brings with it hope.

“Great fun! It takes some nerve, not to mention diabolical intelligence … to pull off the elaborate pranks devised by the Yes Men.”
