In 1988, Chilean military dictator Augusto Pinochet, due to international pressure, is forced to call a plebiscite on his presidency. 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 advertising executive, Rene Saavedra, 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.
Nominated for best foreign language film at this year's Academy Awards (hey, remember them?), and coming only a few months after our own national elections, No captures a pivotal moment in Chilean politics - the 1988 plebiscite in which citizens were asked to either keep their military dictator, Augusto Pinochet, in power, or vote to have an open presidential election. » Read more
