Bernal is cynical young advertising executive Rene Saavedra, who is asked to spearhead the “No” campaign for those opposing the Pinochet regime. With scant resources, constant scrutiny from individuals sympathetic to Pinochet’s totalitarian regime including ad agency colleagues and the secret police, this bold, 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 at the BFI London Film Festival in 2012.
Special preview followed by a Q&A with Gael Garcia Bernal and special guest, moderated by Dave Calhoun, film editor at Time Out London
