Yes Men Fix the World
USA, 2009, 90’
Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonanno are a pair of rabble-rousers fixated on political, economic and environmental crimes. Distributing a falsified issue of The New York Times or speaking on behalf of industrialists and promising compensation to the victims of an environmental disaster, excellent political actors Andy and Mike talk of joint-responsibility and offer solutions to problems. Walking on a knife’s edge and changing reality for a short moment, the boys point to a more positive-thinking and greener world. To some it’s a fairytale, to others a nightmare, but be that as it may, it turns out that saving the world is an exciting and fun affair that anyone can do!
On www.theyesmen.org there are partisan-worthy suggestions for getting a say at important press conferences and unmasking hypocritical ads and politician’s statements. World-savers share their experiences and their numbers are growing rapidly!
