OSCAR-nominated in this year’s ‘Best Foreign Film’ category’, NO (15) stars Gael Garcia Bernal (The Motorcyle Diaries, Y Tu Mama Tambien) in the true story about one of the most unlikely outcomes in world history. With only 15 minutes of TV exposure in the early hours of the morning, how did a small team of media executives opposing Pinochet’s regime manage to remove the Chilean dictator from power? NO will be available to rent and own on DVD, iTunes and the Curzon’s Home Cinema online shop ‘On Demand’ from 17 June, courtesy of Network Releasing, DVD RRP £19.99, iTunes and Curzon ‘On Demand’ from £9.99.
Bernal plays cynical young advertising executive Rene Saavedra who is asked to spearhead the ‘No’ campaign for those opposing the Pinochet regime to bring democracy to Chile. With scant resources, constant scrutiny from individuals sympathetic to Pinochet’s totalitarian regime including ad agency colleagues and the secret police, this bold and enthralling film looks at how a team of Chile’s “Mad Men” and opponents of the dictatorial regime instigated change. Seamlessly blending scripted scenes with archive footage, NO is a compelling period piece which made it one of the most talked about films of 2013 and the first major arthouse hit of the year.
Other cast members include Alfredo Castro, who also starred in the films directed by Pablo Larrain Tony Manero and Post Mortem. NO concludes Larrain’s trilogy of films on Pinochet.
