"Comedic vigilante justice. . . .Media-savvy pie-to-the-face." —USA Today

West Coast premiere! This screwball action doc follows two gonzo activists infiltrating the world of big business. A wake-up call on the dangers of letting the cult of the market rule the world, this film follows our protagonists from India to New Orleans to New York City, on a mission to save civilization from its worst excesses. Directors Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonanno will be on hand for pre-show meet and greet and post-show audience Q&A. A courtyard performance by Reggie Watts will follow the screening. Cash bar all night.  (2009, 90 min., DIRS. A. Bichlbaum and M. Bonanno)
