DIR: PABLO LARRAÍN
2012 | CHILE | 118 MINS

In 1988, Chilean military dictatory Augusto Pinochet is forced to call a plebiscite on his presidency due to international pressure. The country will vote Yes or No to Pinochet extending his rule for another eight years. Opposition leaders for the No persuade a brash young executive, René Saavedra (Gael García Bernal), to spearhead their campaign.

Against all odds, with scant resources and under scrutiny by the despots minions, Saavedra and his team devise an audacious plan to win the election and set Chile free.

Director Pablo Larraín has said, in response to the question how much of the story is real?: “Everything. The concept, the jingles, the commercials, the slogans. All of it is true. What had to be adapted was that many of the characters had to be condensed into fewer people because we couldn’t include every single one of these people and have a cast of 100. Also, something that became a point of dicussion in Chile afterwards was that the film shows one point of view, and doesn’t show the reality and the importance that the political world had, which was very significant. It doesn’t show the contribution of the people on the street, who played a very important part in what happened and succeeded in mobilising a country.” – In Sounds and Colors
