The Chilean drama "No" arrives at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival with a lot of stamps in its passport, having played at the film festivals in Cannes, Telluride, Toronto and New York. It’s also one of the nine titles on the short-list for this year’s Oscar in the foreign-language category.
The movie tells the story of the 19888 referendum that Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet placed on the ballot to legitimize his regime. The vote was as simple up-or-down decision, "yes" or "no" — and the "no" forces called upon an advertising executive (played by Gael Garcia Bernal) to come up with a happy campaign to draw opposition to Pinochet.
"No" debuts in the Spotlight section of the 2013 Sundance Film Festival.
