Screening & Live Event
An Evening with The Yes Men

Part of No Joke: Absurd Comedy as Political Reality
Sunday, October 13, 7:00 p.m.
Museum of the Moving Image - Bartos Screening Room

Activist prankster duo The Yes Men (who go by the pseudonyms Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonnano) have spent the past two decades trolling corporate power and government corruption through an inventive blend of hoaxes and infiltration stunts. Masquerading as spokespeople for Dow Chemical and ExxonMobil, designing fake websites for George Bush’s 2000 campaign and the WTO, and distributing fake physical copies of The New York Times, The New York Post, and The Washington Post, the Yes Men have used mass media to force major world players to publicly confront their roles in some of the worst disasters and schemes of modern times. Andy and Mike will join us for an evening in which we will screen and discuss some of their greatest stunts as well as some of their collaborative pranks.
