The Silence of Others, presented by FilmBath.
After Franco died in 1975 and democracy was restored to Spain, the Amnesty Law was passed. This bill not only freed all of Franco’s victims, but also pardoned all the perpetrators, glossing over 40 years of atrocities. This film follows a few brave people who challenge that decision in modern-day Spain and fight for justice for their forgotten loved ones. With the support of the Almodóvar brothers, Carracedo and Bahar have made a powerful and evocative film. ‘Unfolding with all the force of a classic political thriller … The Silence of Others emerges as a moving salute to the small victories of determined individuals’ – Screen International.
