The Yes Men
First screened in March 2005
Directors: Chris Smith, Dan Ollman, and Sarah Price. Documentary record of key pranks by anti-globalization activists Mike Bonanno and Andy Bichlbaum.

Twitter Capsule: Not all pranks are created equal; some don't trick anyone from what I saw. But funniest bits are instantly indelible.

VOR:   Could just as easily be an hour-long TV special. Striking window into unusual form of protest. But hard to gauge how valuable or productive it really is.
