Tony Manero’ and ‘No’

Chilean filmmaker Pablo Larraín visits Harvard to show two of the several fascinating features he’s made about the Pinochet dictatorship. The alarming Tony Manero (named not for its insane protagonist, but rather his ego-ideal, John Travolta’s character in Saturday Night Fever) is a brusque black comedy about killer on the loose in late ‘70s Santiago; the upbeat but equally sardonic No shows how feel-good advertising brought down the dictator in the 1988 plebiscite.

Films showing on November 16 and 17. For more information, please visit hcl.harvard.edu.
