»Chile, joy awaits us!« Pablo Larraín’s third film on the Pinochet regime is a witty David-vs-Goliath story. In 1988, Chilean dictator Augusto Pinochet bows to international pressure and allows a referendum on his presidency. Chileans have the choice of saying Yes or No to another 8 years of Pinochet. The leading figures in the opposition persuade René Saveedra, a cheeky young adman to lead their campaign. Against all predictions, with just meagre means and under the suspicious gaze of Pinochet stalwarts, Saveedra and his teams design a cunning plan to win the election.


PABLO LARRAÍN (*1976) is one of Latin American cinema’s leading directors. FILMFEST HAMBURG showed his second film Tony Manero in 2008 and No in 2012, which was the first Chilean film to be nominated for an Oscar as best foreign language film.
