THE YES MEN FIX THE WORLD is a screwball true story about two gonzo political activists who, posing as top executives of giant corporations, lie their way into big business conferences and pull off the world's most outrageous pranks. From New Orleans to India to New York City, armed with little more than cheap thrift-store suits, the Yes Men squeeze raucous comedy out of all the ways that corporate greed is destroying the planet.
Brüno meets Michael Moore in this gut-busting wake-up call that proves a little imagination can go a long way towards vanquishing the Cult of Greed. Who knew fixing the world could be so much fun?
“Funnier and more useful than Sacha Baron Cohen's Brüno.” — The Observer
“It shines with raw wit and originality.” — Newsweek
“This is the year's top documentary film.” — New Scientist
NEW LOCATION: Christ Church United Methodist, 35 State St. Directions here.
The Yes Men agree their way into the fortified compounds of commerce, ask questions, and then smuggle out the stories of their hijinks to provide a public glimpse at the behind-the-scenes world of business. In other words, The Yes Men are team players... but they play for the opposing team.
