Pablo Larrain‘s latest project No, which won the top prize at Cannes 44th Directors’ Fortnight, finally opens this February, and today we’re here to share the latest trailer for the whole thing. In other words – make sure you check out Gael Garcia Bernal who stars as a young advertising executive aka the man who encouraged the Chilean public to vote no to Pinochet leading the nation for another eight years.
Larrain directed the movie from a script written by Pedro Peirano which is based on Antonio Skarmeta‘s play El Plebiscito.
Based on true events, film centers on an ad man named Rene Saavedra who, when Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet staged a referendum in 1988 to gain a further eight-year term in office, launched a brilliantly upbeat ad campaign which, against all odds, ousted Pinochet from power.
Beside Garcia Bernal, No also stars Alfredo Castro, Antónia Zegers, Marcial Tagle, Néstor Cantillana, Jaime Vadell, Pascal Montero and Sony Pictures Classics will release the movie in limited theaters on February 15th, 2012.
