Gael Garcia Bernal Tries to Set Chile Free in Official No Trailer

The official international trailer for Chilean director and screenwriter Pablo Larrain’s new drama, ‘No,’ has been released. The film, which stars Gael Garcia Bernal, is this year’s official Chilean entry for the Chilean entry for the Academy Awards for best Foreign Language Film. ‘No’ is set to be theatrically released on February 15, 2013 in New York and Los Angeles.

‘No’ follows Chilean military dictator Augusto Pinochet in 1988, as he’s forced to call a plebiscite on his presidency, after receiving international pressure. The country will vote yes or no to Pinochet extending his term for another eight years. Opposition leaders for the no side persuade Rene Saavedra (played by Bernal), a young advertising executive, to lead their campaign. Against all odds, with little resources and under scrutiny by the president’s people, Saavedra and his team develop a plan to win the election and set Chile free.
