Laura Nix, The Yes Men (Andy Bichlbaum, Mike Bonanno) / USA, Denmark, Netherlands, France / 2014 / 91 min. / English / Czech subtitles

A self-portrait of professional agitators who battle corporate arrogance and callousness with humour and craftiness. They’re notorious for holding fake press conferences during which they credibly pose as officials, corporate representatives or lobbyists and communicate shocking information to journalists. This method effectively drew attention to, for example, Shell’s risky plan to drill for oil in the Arctic. This film, from the series of documentaries about the original duo, is more personal. When one of their endeavours goes awry, the Yes Men become sceptical, but the well-known Occupy Wall Street movement surfaces and validates the meaning of their work.
