When Francisco Franco died in 1975, the dictatorship era full of innumerable sufferings and crimes against humanity ended. However, the “Pact of forgetting” which was passed shortly after was making it impossible for the victims of the regime to seek justice. Co-executive produced by Pedro Almodóvar, this multiple award-winning documentary focuses on the groundbreaking “Argentine Lawsuit”. Victims who were tortured and whose babies were kidnapped by the state and relatives murdered and buried in mass graves are trying to get the justice they couldn’t receive in their own country through an Argentine court. The Silence of Others follows this unprecedented fight for justice for 6 years and documents the healing process of a nation.
