Political entrapment (October 23 – November 18) 

No (Chile, Pablo Laraín, 2012)

René Saavedra is a fashionable young advertising executive who is solicited for an unusual and desperate project in 1988: defeating the Chilean dictator Pinochet in a plebiscite referendum. A “Yes” vote would extend Pinochet’s rule for eight years; but with René’s brash plan, the “No” side hopes to defy political threats and free their country.
