The Silence of Others

El silencio de otros

21st TDF: Greek Premiere

Four decades into democracy, yet the wounds in Spanish society have still not healed, as the atrocious crimes of the Franco regime are not acknowledged by the national narrative. Filmed over seven years, this courageous and moving documentary follows victims and survivors of a dark and suppressed past fight against the state-imposed amnesia of crimes against humanity. Sometimes, when seeking justice, the voice of the few can break the silence of the (many) others.
