The Yes Men Are Revolting

In The Yes Men Are Revolting (2015), the iconic duo Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonanno culture jam their way into environmentally polluting institutions and organizations that are taking part in climate change denial. The duo takes on big companies such as Shell and exposes their policies in an often absurdist and funny way. Survivaballs, polarbears and songwriting, in this documentary these man will do anything to make sure that the mainstream media, and therefor the world, know the part these institutions play in the on-going climate crisis. Most often this is accompanied by ridiculing the policies of these companies.

The Yes Men Are Revolting falls in the genre of eco-documentary. The duo uses documentary in order to raise awareness for the climate crisis. They try to get people involved in the debate by exposing the truth in a way that is comprehensible to anybody. Their legacy currently lives on (albeit online) where a community of Yes men continue the work that they started.
