An engaged couple – Alex (Gael Garcia Bernal) and Nica go backpacking in remote regions of Georgia’s dramatic Caucasus Mountains, with a rustic guide, Data. It’s an uneventful trek, but for one, short, odd and dangerous crossing of paths with a gun toting old man and a couple of young men, possibly his sons. The moment derails the mood and threatens to undo everything the pair believed about each other and about themselves.

Nominated for 2013 Oscar – Best Foreign Language Film. In 1988, Chilean military dictator Augusto Pinochet is forced to call a plebiscite on his presidency. The country will vote ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ to Pinochet extending his rule for another 8 years. Opposition leaders for the ‘No’ vote persuade a brash young advertising executive, Rene Saavedra, to spearhead their campaign. Against all odds, with scant resources and while under scrutiny by the despot’s minions, Saavedra and his team devise an audacious plan to win the election and set Chile free. It’s a smart, involving potent film that mixes reality and drama to provocative effect.
