Next film: Tuesday 7th January at 8PM - No
‘No’ dramatises Chile’s Berlin Wall moment in 1988. Under international pressure to legitimise his government, but bathing in the support of a newly prosperous middle and upper-middle class and hugely confident of success, General Pinochet allowed a referendum on whether he would be allowed another 8 years in office. This movie focuses on the “No” campaign devised by young advertising executive René, (Gael García Bernal), who decided to stay away from angry political images and instead emphasise an upbeat, almost apolitical vision of the future.
