THE SILENCE OF OTHERS
EL SILENCIO DE OTROS
2019, Argot Pictures, 96 min, Spain/France/Canada/USA, Dir: Almudena Carracedo, Robert Bahar

This gripping documentary explores the epic struggle to come to terms with Spain’s violent fascist past at both an individual and a national level. Filmed over six years, the documentary follows survivors of Francisco Franco’s 40-year authoritarian regime as they organize a groundbreaking international lawsuit and fight the so-called “Pact of Forgetting,” a 1977 amnesty law that protects the perpetrators of crimes under the dictatorship. Winner of the prestigious 2019 Goya Award for Best Documentary, as well as more than 30 other international awards, it is the second feature-length documentary from Emmy-winning filmmakers Almudena Carracedo and Robert Bahar and is executive produced by Pedro Almodóvar. “This courageous, moving … and eye-opening documentary dares to demand the truth.” - Alfonso Rivera, Cineuropa.
