The Silence of Others is a powerful and passionate documentary about the victims of General Franco’s dictatorship in Spain, still battling for justice forty years after his death. Franco’s repressive regime silenced any of his opposition with mass arrests, prison camps, forced labor, torture and execution. After the establishment of a liberal democracy, the controversial Amnesty Law freed anti-Franco political prisoners but also the regime’s henchmen responsible for countless atrocities. A growing grassroots campaign has been fighting to bring them to justice ever since.

'How is it possible today that there are people who are dying before they’re able to exhume their loved ones and bury them in a cemetery in a country with such Christian values? How is it possible that there are thousands of children who don’t know who their parents are?' Almudena Carracedo, Co-Director.
