Oscar Members Say Yes To ‘NO’ 11Jan2013
Network Releasing is delighted to announce that Pablo Larrain’s compelling drama NO has been shortlisted at the 85th OSCAR™ Academy Awards for ‘Best Foreign Language Film’. Gael Garcia Bernal stars as Rene Saavedra who spearheads the advertising campaign which, against all odds, managed to overthrow Pinochet’s regime in 1988 to bring democracy to Chile.
Director of NO, Pablo Larrain, said: “I am delighted that NO has been shortlisted for the 85th Academy Awards and that its members have had the imagination to embrace one of the most important stories in Chilean history.
Larrain added, “Many people know how Pinochet came to power in a coup; few know how he left. This is the story of how a group of young ad executives defied fear, and with the help of happiness, changed the destiny of a nation”.
NO opens in UK cinemas on 8 February 2013.
