Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis sued him, Marlon Brando broke his jaw and Steve McQueen gave him a look that would have killed, if looks could kill. To the celebrities he pursued, photographer Ron Galella was the beast who threatened beauty. His shots have been the cause of tears, grins and jeers but also they have recently been exhibited at art galleries such as New York's Museum of Modern Art. But what does it mean to exhibit the work of the man who considers himself the very first paparazzo? Just what is it that makes his photographs art or are they the opportunistic snaps?

From transportation to food, from shelter to companionship, Joe must depend on the generosity of people who he had never met. Will Joe be able to survive with nothing, apart from the goodwill of others?

He not only revolutionised the profession with a new way of acting, in just a few epic roles he also became an icon and a real inspiration for an entire generation of youth. But there was another person hidden behind the Hollywood image: a private, secret Brando.

For the last 20 years, the notorious activists the Yes Men have staged outrageous and hilarious hoaxes to draw international attention to corporate crimes against humanity and the environment. Armed with nothing but thrift-store suits and a lack of shame, these iconoclastic revolutionaries lie their way into business events and government functions to expose the dangers of letting greed run our world. They are now well into their 40s, and their mid-life crises are threatening to drive them out of activism forever even as they prepare to take on the biggest challenge theyve ever faced: climate change. The Yes Men Are Revolting is as much a character study as it is an entertaining depiction of their latest interventions. Revealing the real people behind the ruses, at its heart lies a hopeful message about fighting for change. Follow the conversation on Twitter: #SBS2 (From the US) (Documentary) (class. tba)
