No - directed by Pablo Larrain, Chile, 2013; dinner at Fido's at 7:00 p.m.

Sorry for the short notice on this as tomorrow is my only good day to attend this week.  In 1988, Chilean military dictator Augusto Pinochet, due to international pressure, is forced to call a referendum on his presidency.  The country will vote YES or NO to Pinochet extending his rule for another eight years. Opposition leaders for the NO persuade a brash young advertising executive, Rene Saavedra (Gael Garcia Bernal), to spearhead their campaign.  With scant resources and under scrutiny by the despot's minions, Saavedra and his team devise an audacious plan to win the election and set Chile free.

Dinner at Fido's first for those interested. I'll be at Fido's at 7:00 p.m. It's across from Boscos and Sam's.

If you have not been to The Belcourt before, you need to get a parking ticket for your vehicle from the machine by the sidewalk or you may be ticketed by security as non-Belcourt attendees using The Belcourt parking lot pay a parking charge. You will need the code for the parking machine. It can be obtained when you buy your ticket on site from the ticket. It is also printed on your ticket if you buy it online.

Derek will be in the lobby seated at a table at 7:55 p.m. until 8. If you don't spot us or arrive later, call or text me at [masked]. I'll come out to the lobby and show you where we are sitting at.

      For those of us that consider arithmetic above four to be a challenge, if not metaphysics, was never a problem. Olive-drab army jacket, chucks-hightop-black,
