Winner of the Berlinale Audience Award, The Silence of Others is a rigorous look at the ongoing struggles of victims of General Franco’s 40-year dictatorship in Spain. The survivors of re-education camps, child abductions, torture and extrajudicial killings have come together in a ground-breaking international court case, breaking their silence and confronting perpetrators who have enjoyed decades of impunity. Unfolding with all the force of a classic political thriller, The Silence of Others explores the shadows that the past casts upon the present, in a country still divided after four decades of democracy.

“Exceptionally moving… In a style evocative of the best of Patricio Guzmán…"  IDA Magazine 

“This courageous, moving, lithe, necessary and eye-opening documentary dares to demand the truth.”
