For nearly two decades, the Yes Men have pulled off notorious media hoaxes to expose corporate crimes against humanity and the environment. They have infiltrated corporate conferences, trade shows and television interviews using dozens of pseudonyms and fake identities to masquerade as the rich and powerful.
THE YES MEN ARE REVOLTING is a film that finally reveals these guys as they truly are while taking into consideration the many ways in which their idiosyncratic manner of social activism influences the kinds of lives they lead. This Yes Men film reveals these world-class culture jammers to be Igor Vamos and Jacques Servin, colleagues who struggle to keep their personal lives intact while working day jobs to pay the rent, fight frequent lawsuits and yet somehow continue to pull off hilarious and biting media spectacles that turn a sharp critical eye on the world’s worst human made ills.
