Winner of Spain’s prestigious Goya award for Best Documentary Feature, The Silence of Others offers a cinematic portrait of the first attempt in history to prosecute crimes of General Franco’s 40-year dictatorship in Spain (1939-1975), whose perpetrators have enjoyed impunity for decades due to a 1977 amnesty law. It brings to light a painful past that Spain is reluctant to face, even today, decades after the dictator’s death.
