SPC picks up North American rights to Directors’ Fortnight entry No

Pablo Larraín’s story is based on true events and stars Gael García Bernal as an advertising executive who in 1988 is hired to spearhead the Chilean opposition leader’s campaign after military dictator Augusto Pinochet calls a referendum.

Participant Media financed the film in association with Funny Balloons and Fabula. Jeff Ivers and Jonathan King of Participant Media negotiated the deal with SPC.

No also stars Alfredo Castro, Antónia Zegers, Marcial Tagle, Néstor Cantillana, Jaime Vadell and Pascal Montero. Pedro Peirano wrote the screenplay and Juan de Diós Larraín and Daniel Dreifuss produced and Participant’s Jeff Skoll and King served as executive producers.

“Pablo, Gael and the team made a brave, inspiring film, and we are grateful to the audiences at Cannes for embracing it so warmly,” Participant Media CEO Jim Berk said. “Sony Pictures Classics is the perfect partner to introduce this film to American audiences.”
