Pablo Larrin’s movie “No”, starring Gael García Bernal

June 6, 2013 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

$11

In director Pablo Larraín’s political drama NO, Chilean military dictator Augusto Pinochet is forced by international pressure to call a plebiscite on his presidency in 1988. The country will vote YES or NO to Pinochet extending his rule for another eight years. Opposition leaders for the NO camp persuade a brash young advertising executive, Rene Saavedra (Gael García Bernal), to spearhead their campaign. Against all odds, with scant resources and under scrutiny by the despot’s minions, Saavedra and his team devise an audacious plan to win the election and set Chile free. Official Selection at the Toronto International and Telluride Film Festivals, and Academy Award nominee for Best Foreign Language Film.
