The Silence of Others reveals an ongoing struggle of victims of Spain’s 40-year dictatorship under General Franco, who wielded gargantuan power and influence over all areas of Spanish society from 1935-1975. A 1977 general Amnesty law passed by the Spanish parliament decreed that there would be no persecution of individuals for crimes committed during the Civil War or years of Franco’s dictatorship, as a means of forging ahead with a new, democratic Spain. Yet for some Spanish citizens, the wounds of the past cannot heal without a greater sense of justice and closure. Over the span of six years, award-winning documentarians Almudena Carracedo and Robert Bahar follow survivors of the dictatorship as they explore legal challenges to the 1977 law, revealing a country still grappling with the legacy of terror, even after four decades of democracy.

Executive Produced by Pedro Almodóvar, Agustín Almodóvar, and Esther García, and winner of the Berlinale Panorama Audience Award and Berlinale Peace Film Prize, The Silence of Others connects with a collective fear that those who forget history may be doomed to repeat it.
