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 victims and survivors as they organise the groundbreaking “Argentine Lawsuit” and fight a state-imposed amnesia of crimes against humanity, in a country still divided four decades into democracy. It is a story that has great resonance with, and similarities to, Ireland’s.

“Unfolding with all the force of a classic political thriller by Costa-Gavras or Francesco Rosi... The Silence of Others emerges as a moving salute to the small victories of determined individuals.” - SCREEN DAILY
