Screening of the other Yes Men movie at the Henry

December 15, 2009

For everyone who, like me, didn’t get enough of the Yes Men a couple weeks ago when we played The Yes Men Save the World, don’t miss this screening of the first Yes Men movie at the Henry Art Gallery. It’s all part of the same series marking the 10 year anniversary of the WTO protests in Seattle.

Screening: THE YES MEN

Thursday, December 17, 2009, 7:00 – 8:30 PM
Henry Auditorium
FREE Henry Members and students w/ID; $5 general admission

THE YES MEN (…THE FIRST MOVIE) (82 min, Chris Smith, Dan Ollman, 2005)

See the Yes Men’s new film, _The Yes Men Fix the World, at Northwest Film Forum and then come to the Henry for re-view of their first self-titled release. Yes Men Andy Bichlbaum & Mike Bonanno parody the official website of the World Trade Organization (www.gatt.org) with a mock site so convincing that visitors miss the ruse and start sending event invitations. With poker-faced impersonation as their weapon and corporate irresponsibility as their target, the Yes Men pull off a series of increasingly bold pranks.

Henry Art Gallery Associate Curator Sara Krajewski will introduce the film.

Share This Place features live music by Lori Goldston and Kyle Hanson of Spectratone International and Mirah Yom Tov Zeitlyn, and stop-motion films by Britta Johnson. Based on the writings of the French scientist/poet, Jean Henri Fabré, the show explores the sordid, tragic, and triumphant lives of insects. The evening begins with a conversation about Adapation and an interview with Goldston, Hanson, Johnson, and Zeitlyn about the process of adapting Fabré’s writings, followed by a performance.

The project Share this Place was made possible with support from the City of Seattle Office of Arts and Cultural Affairs. This event celebrates the K Records release of the DVD Share This Place
