Dinner with Yes Man Mike Bonanno
Noted environmental and anti-corporate activist Mike Bonanno, co-founder of The Yes Men, will be in Troy for a fundraising dinner and sneak preview of the new film "The Yes Men Are Revolting" to benefit The Sanctuary for Independent Media this Tuesday (November 4).

Reservations for the 5:30 PM dinner include the screening. Advance tickets for just the 7 PM screening are also available online (http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/906446) or by donation at the door ($10 suggested, $5 student/low income).

Both events take place at The Sanctuary for Independent Media, 3361 6th Avenue (at 101st Street) in North Troy.  Call (518) 272-2390 or email for reservations, directions and more information.

Election night becomes a feast at the hands of international art-star prankster and down home chef, Mike Bonanno!

This 5:30 PM pre-film screening event is an informal fundraising dinner to benefit The Sanctuary for Independent Media, prepared by the Yes Man himself!  Get inside stories about the mysterious gallivanting of the Yes Men as they have travelled the globe making trouble for more than a decade while supporting the ongoing community-building work of a risk-taking local non-profit that brings you unique and transformative music and culture.

Then, at 7 PM, enjoy a sneak preview of the new film "The Yes Men Are Revolting"!  At a time when corporate forces have bought and sold democracy, Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonanno ask how we can effect real change...

"The Yes Men Are Revolting" is a funny, action-packed adventure. With the environment on the brink of collapse, they ask a pressing question: at a time when corporate forces have bought and sold democracy, how can we effect real change? Their answer: get every viewer involved in the struggle.

"The Yes Men Are Revolting" chronicles the past five years of pranksters Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonanno (not their real names), the infamous activists known for duping the media with their impersonations of corporate shills and government stooges. At this stage of their career, the Yes Men have climate change at the top of their agenda, which takes them to Washington, Copenhagen, Uganda, and the Albertan tar sands. Laura Nix and the Yes Men team up as directors, recording every step of Bichlbaum and Bonanno's journey as they meet with collaborators and pull off their witty stunts. Their planning and execution is filled with anxiety and improvisation, some pranks fizzling while others turn into media whirlwinds  and one case brings a threat of legal action more serious than any the Yes Men have ever encountered before.

"The Yes Men Are Revolting" completes a trilogy of funny feature docs they started a decade ago. In their first film, "The Yes Men" (2004), they posed as spokespeople for the World Trade Organization, acting out comedic vigilante justice against the elite. In "The Yes Men Fix the World" (2009), they delivered a bunch of hard-hitting, hilarious stunts that show why they must change our corporations-first system, and what's in store if we don't. "The Yes Men Are Revolting" is an even more jam-packed with screwball comedy, nail-biting suspense, nasty stings, and informative documentary.
