Preaching Against the Evil of Consumerism

"Like Michael Moore, Reverend Billy puts himself on the line, exposing corporate pomposity wherever he finds it."
-- San Francisco Independent Film Festival

Reverend Billy, a.k.a. Bill Talen, is an actor/performance artist and a leading figure in the anti-globalization movement. His work combines the forces of social and political change with the means of theater arts to counteract our media culture. His artistic and political work is influenced by various concepts of "street theater." His disruptions or "shopping interventions" in public spaces are in the tradition of the Living Theater, José Bové, Lenny Bruce, The Yippies.
