Comedy Team To Release 1 hour film about Conservatives, Surveillance and Climate change
From Executive Producers The Yes Men and Mark Achbar (The Corporation, Manufacturing Consent)
The political comedy pranksters at SHD.ca are releasing a one hour film on YouTube, October 14th, 2015. The film focuses on the expansion of state surveillance in an era of climate change and offers a timely look at Canada’s history of racism and Islamophobia. The comedic documentary features Canadian surveillance targets Cindy Blackstock, Obert Madondo and Mohammad Mahjoub.
The film also features never before seen footage of the artists’ numerous interactions with CSE officials and a behind the scenes look at how the pranksters have repeatedly breached the Prime Minister’s personal security. Director Sean Devlin is a Filipino-Canadian comedian and filmmaker who was recently arrested at one of the Prime Minister’s campaign events (Read about it in The Globe and Mail). In recent weeks the group also caused a stir with a parody Conservative site that the government intervened with (Read about it in The National Post).
