The Yes Men
a film by Dan Olman
The Yes Men follows Andy and Mike, a pair of anti-corporate pranksters, as they pose as spokesmen for the World Trade Organization. They attend conferences and even a live television debate, planning to shock audiences with their outrageous proposals to improve global free trade in the best interest of wealthy nations.
