The Silence of Others

director: Robert Bahar, Almudena Carracedo
original title: The Silence of Others
country: United States, Spain
year: 2018
running time: 96 min.


A chronicle of institutional displacement of the mass genocide by the Francoist clergo-fascist regime in Spain. An amnesty along with the so-called “Pact of Forgetting” (1977) have erased political crimes and made over one thousand victims of terror invisible. Historic images and dozens of survivor testimonies present a survey of the struggle against collective amnesia. 


Almudena Carracedo (1972) is a Spanish director and author of the award-winning film Made in L.A. (2007). Together with the American filmmaker and producer Robert Bahar (1975), she spent six years working on The Silence of Others in the U.S.
