SILVA MORENO, Rocío Valentina. Fiction and transformations of historical memory in NO by Pablo Larraín. Comun. medios [online]. 2019, vol.28, n.39, pp.174-185. ISSN 0716-3991.

This article exposes part of the results of the analysis of the film NO (2012), by Pablo Larraín, in his incorporation to the memory regime of the dictatorship 40 years after the coup d'état in Chile, after being converted into a television series. Starting from the base that commemorative discourses organize our perception of the past in function of the present, and considering the weight that the mass media have today in those processes, it was analyzed, from a discursive and culturalist perspective, the construction narrative made by fiction and what implies its incorporation into that memory regime, positioned as a hegemonic narrative of the transition to democracy. The analysis consider how fiction produces, visibilizes and conceals different dimensions of the historical process, concluding that the production redistributes the political conflict and the subjectivities implied in it, influencing differentially the construction of memories about the dictatorship, by establishing the use of the marketing language as the main responsible for the success of the NO in the plebiscite.

Palabras clave : Discursive dispositive; historical fiction; mass media; hegemony; memory; transition to democracy in Chile.
