Summary For 20 years, notorious activists the Yes Men (Mike Bonanno and Andy Bichlbaum) have staged outrageous hoaxes to hijack public dialogue about the issues of the day. In their third cinematic outing (after *The Yes Men* and *The Yes Men Fix the World*), they’re well into their 40s, and mid-life crises are threatening to drive them out of activism forever – even as they prepare to take on the biggest challenge yet: climate change. Their latest film is as much a character study as it is a thrilling ride depicting their latest interventions against corporate greed. From villages in Uganda, to toxic oil fields in Canada, these iconoclastic revolutionaries take on big oil, lobbyists, and the U.S. government, armed with nothing but thrift-store suits. Overcoming personal obstacles to deliver uproarious actions of global significance, the Yes Men deliver a hopeful message about ordinary people taking back the planet. Nominated for the Panorama Audience Award - Documentary Film at the **Berlin International Film Festival**. Official Selection at the **Toronto International Film Festival**. *"Who said that a political film can't be sweet, too? In its grandest triumph, THE YES MEN ARE REVOLTING is an activist doc inspired by more than just its topical issues." - Nick Allen, *****
