The Silence of Others is a documentary that connects memories and human rights. It is a real story from Spain with echoes in Latin America and beyond.

Filmed over six years, The Silence of Others reveals the epic struggle of victims of Spain’s 40-year dictatorship under General Franco, as they organize a groundbreaking international lawsuit and fight a “pact of forgetting” around the crimes they suffered. The film offers a cautionary tale about fascism and the dangers of forgetting the past, and speaks powerfully to issues of transitional justice and universal jurisdiction.

The film has screened at festivals in more than 70 countries. It has won 40+ international prizes, including the 2019 Goya for Best Feature Documentary (Spain’s Academy Award) and the Grand Jury Award at Sheffield Doc/Fest (UK), among others.
