Added to my films

In 1988, in an effort to extend and legitimize its rule, the Chilean military junta announced it would hold a plebiscite to get the people’s permission to stay in power. Enter Rene Saavedra (Gael García Bernal), an ad man who, after a career pushing soft drinks and soap, sets out to sell Chileans on democracy and freedom. He opts for images of happiness and joy, promoting the image of a "new Chile," complete with a rainbow logo. As the "No" campaign begins to gain ground though, the tension begins to mount between the men as Saavedra and those in the opposition begin to receive death threats.

"Fuga" (2005), "Tony Manero" (2008), "Post Mortem" (2010, "Kino pavasaris"), "Fugitives" (2012, TV series), "No" (2012, "Kino pavasaris").
