Mischief Activism Filmmaking: Doing Good by Being Bad

Keil Orion Troisi (of mischief-activism groups The Yes Men and The Fixers) explores "trickster activism” that uses filmmaking and comedy to advance human rights campaigns and antagonize evil-doers.

Keil is an artist and activist who uses mischievous performance and media-hacking to challenge oppressive systems. For over a decade he has been a core member of culture-jamming group The Yes Men, and co-founded an “emergent faction” called The Fixers to expand his practice in new directions. He has taught in the Trickster Academy, and won a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship in Screenwriting-Playwriting (2019). He wrote and directed the corporate-horror movie Human Resources (2015), award-winning short Mono Generation (2017), and produced, co-wrote, and appeared in The Peace Pipeline, a MAP Funded comedy performance opposing Line 3, which won Best Documentary Short at the 2021 Dallas VideoFest. He helped stage an “Apartheid zombie” takeover, guerrilla-flyered for murderous food companies, showed off an invisible border wall to Trumpers, orchestrated a “grand guignol-esque” bloodbath in Paris and a feud between Marvel and Vanguard to expose their climate-killing investments. Keil’s work balances humor and horror to disrupt systems of power and the fabric of dominant culture, wielding trickery to create the sense of magic we need to reclaim agency from forces that would prefer us to remain passive.
