  • The Yes Men Fix the World

    2009. USA. Directed by Andy Bichlbaum, Mike Bonnano, Kurt Engefehr. The taller half of the dastardly duo The Yes Men, Andy Bichlbaum will be on hand at MoMA to introduce their wickedly satirical and, er, inspiring second film, winner of an audience award at the Berlin Film Festival. Gonzo journalists, merry pranksters, and activist performance artists, Bichlbaum and Mike Bonnano pose as top executives of Halliburton, Dow Chemical, Exxon, and HUD to cast an incriminating light on rampant corporate greed. Their infamous escapades attempt to turn that greed into good, whether by impersonating a Dow Chemical representative on BBC World News who announces that the company will “do the right thing” by taking responsibility for the Bhopal chemical disaster and compensating its victims, or launching a new product, SurvivaBalls, that will protect corporate managers from drastic climate change. (The rest of us, presumably, will have to fend for ourselves.) 87 min.
