The Orchard has acquired all North American rights to “The Yes Men Are Revolting.”
The comic documentary premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival.
The film will have its New York premiere as the closing night film of the DOC NYC festival on Friday, followed by a 2015 release. Dennis Harvey gave the film a positive review at Toronto for Variety.
The film, directed by Laura Nix, is the third installment of the series about the prankster-activists Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonanno. The duo attack the lack of response to the global warming crisis.
The previous titles are “The Yes Men” (2003) and “The Yes Men Fix The World” (2009).
“’The Yes Men Are Revolting’ continues the glorious tradition of hilariously duping the media and government that is also socially relevant and significant,” says The Orchard’s Paul Davidson.
The deal was negotiated by Danielle DiGiacomo and Cinetic Media on behalf of the filmmakers.
