This film was nominated for an Oscar as Best Foreign Language Film in 2013.  It tells the fascinating story of a young advertising executive in Chile who used his “tools of trade” to affect major change in his country.  In 1988, international pressure was put on Chilean military dictator Augusto Pinochet, forcing him to call a referendum on whether or not he would continue in power for another eight years.  Leaders of the “no” movement recruited René Saavedra, who worked in advertising, to spearhead their campaign.  With few resources and constant scrutiny by the dictator’s minions, Saavedra and his team devised a bold plan to win the election and free their country from oppression. They implemented a vibrant ad campaign that was instrumental in deposing the much despised and feared Pinochet. Once released, the film generated some serious criticism regarding its portrayal of complex historical events, particularly from those in Chile who experienced the events depicted.

Running time:  118 minutes

The fourth edition of Melodious Notes Over the Harbor promises for a light and beautiful evening of great music. Clarinetist Sue Collado has again assembled a diverse group of island and mainland musicians for a program featuring works by our own island composers Alex Shapiro and Richard Hieronymus, as well as works by Bach, Toch, Faure, Joplin, Devienne, Khatchaturian and more.

Sue says this variety of instrumentation gives the group a chance to really "mix it up" with different instruments, players and pieces. “It's fun to put all of these wonderful talents together and hear how the different instruments blend and balance with each other to give each composition a 'tantalizing flavor.' We are pleased to continue presenting concerts that offer unique bites of great music and are not your typical chamber music program."
