Oscar Nominated No Available for Two Week Window Via iTunes and Curzon On Demand
NO, the first essential arthouse film of 2013, will be available to view for a limited time on iTunes and Curzon On Demand from 8 March 2013. Off the back of the successful theatrical release, NO will be made available to rent on iTunes for an exclusive 2-week window. This move demonstrates Network's commitment to bringing thought-provoking, critically acclaimed drama to the UK public. NO will be available on iTunes and Curzon On Demand from TBC at £TBC per download.
Oscar-nominated in this year's ‘Best Foreign Language Film' category, NO stars Gael García Bernal in the true story about one of the most unlikely outcomes in world history. How did a small group of media executives and people opposing Pinochet's regime manage to remove Chile's dictator with only 15 minutes TV exposure in the early hours of the morning? NO is one of the most inspirational films you will see this year.
Bernal is cynical young advertising executive, Rene Saavedra, who is asked to spearhead the "No" campaign for those opposing the Pinochet regime to bring democracy to Chile. With scant resources, constant scrutiny from individuals sympathetic to Pinochet's totalitarian regime including ad agency colleagues and the secret police, this bold, enthralling film looks at how a team of Chile's "Mad Men" and opponents of the dictatorial regime instigated change. Seamlessly blending scripted scenes with archive footage NO is a compelling period piece which made it one of the most talked about films at the BFI London Film Festival in 2012.
Commenting on the VOD release, Time Beddows MD at Network Releasing said, "We are giving the UK public the chance to see NO on iTunes and Curzon On Demand for 2 weeks only as many cinemas have opted not to programme the arthouse hit. There is a genuine desire amongst film-lovers to see it, and we here at Network want to provide them with that opportunity as soon as possible".
