The Silence of Others reveals the epic struggle of victims of Spain's 40-year dictatorship under General Franco, who continue to seek justice to this day. Filmed over six years, the film follows the survivors as they organize the groundbreaking 'Argentine Lawsuit' and fight a state-imposed amnesia of crimes against humanity, and explores a country still divided four decades into democracy. Seven years in the making, The Silence of Others is the second documentary feature by Emmy-winning filmmakers Almudena Carracedo and Robert Bahar (Made in L.A.). It is being Executive Produced by Pedro Almodóvar, Agustín Almodóvar, and Esther García.
One of the most sensible documentaries about the fight of a few victims of Franco's dictatorship for justice. I saw it in Barcelona where the director and one of the fighters were. At the end the audience stood up and applauded a lot. The documentary has a few strong emotional moments. Now I understand more why Spain has problems with this part of its history.
