Yes Men Are Revolting movie poster.

Awareness Film Night returns to EMCS

The story of two guys whose sole intention to expose corporate greed comes to EMCS.

Awareness Film Night will open its 21st season with the film The Yes Men Are Revolting on Oct. 7.

Over the last 20 years  prankster activists The Yes Men have staged hoaxes to draw international attention to “corporate crimes” against humanity and the environment.

Armed with nothing but thrift store suits and a lack of shame these iconoclastic revolutionaries lie their way into business events and government functions to expose the dangers of letting greed run our world. The Yes Men Are Revolting is their third film.

More than the first two films, The Yes Men Are Revolting reveals the real people behind the ruses.

Soul-searching and weariness with the apparent lack of meaningful change in the world are explored, but at its heart lies a hopeful message about fighting for change: 1. Never give up; 2. Doing something is better than doing nothing; 3. Use wigs; 4. Regular people can make a change; 5. Collaborate.

Film will be shown at 7 p.m. at the Edward Milne Community School theatre.  Admission is by donation.
