A stirring journey towards truth and reconciliation.

Imagine waking up every day and walking down a street named after the man who tortured you. In Spain, hundreds of street names still commemorate those responsible for the torture, execution and assassination of tens of thousands of people during decades of brutal repression.

Filmed over six years, this multiple award-winning documentary chronicles a growing grassroots campaign by victims of the Franco regime to bring his surviving henchmen to justice, allow the examination of mass graves and force the country to face its past. Their biggest obstacle, aside from the passing of time, is a state-enforced amnesia regarding the crimes against humanity that were committed during the dictatorship.

Revealing a country still deeply divided four decades into democracy, The Silence of Others brings into relief the fragility of democratic institutions – and the need to fight for their protection.

Join us at Take One Action Film Festival for the Scottish Premiere of The Silence of Others.

Robert Bahar, Almudena Carracedo

Directors Robert Bahar and Almudena Carracedo

BEYOND THE SCREEN:

She will be joined, by Scotland-based Spanish filmmaker Iciar Bollain and Dr Mihaela Mihai, Senior Lecturer in Political Theory (University of Edinburgh).
