The Silence of Others (El silencio de otros)

August 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)
Two separate dates
$7 – $65

Filmed over six years, The Silence of Others reveals the epic struggle of victims from Spain’s dictatorship (1939-1975) under General Francisco Franco. A powerful and poetic cautionary tale about fascism, and the dangers of forgetting the past, the award-winning documentary offers a cinematic portrait of the first attempt in history to prosecute crimes of Franco whose perpetrators have enjoyed impunity for decades due to a 1977 amnesty law. Executive produced by Pedro Almodóvar, the film brings to light a painful past that Spain is reluctant to face, even today, decades after the dictator’s death.

“A plea against inaction.” – The New Yorker

“Exceptionally moving… In a style evocative of the best of Patricio Guzmán… this film is a milestone in recovery of a past that is not over—and, to invoke Faulkner, not even past.” – IDA Documentary Magazine

“A stirring documentary… a very necessary story, delivered with rigor and conviction.” – The Hollywood Reporter

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

“Unfolding with all the force of a classic political thriller by Costa-Gavras or Francesco Rosi.” – Screen Daily
