"SILENCE OF THE OTHERS"

On March 25th from 6:30 PM at Cinema Faces (Trakia district), there will be a free screening of the film “The silence of the others” (El silencio de otros, 2018) – a masterpiece of Emmy Award winners Almudena Carracedo and Robert Bahar. Filmed over 6 years, the film follows the victims and survivals of the “Argentinian reconciliation” which aimed to dissect the multiple crimes against humanity conducted by the 40-yearlong dictatorship of Francisco Franco of Spain.

The idea of the past being covered over and forgotten is central to a film that swiftly and economically sets out the facts before drawing us into individual stories and the bigger picture. Following the death of Franco in 1975, Spain is given the opportunity for major changes and reforms. The giddy jubilation of democracy’s dawn led the Spanish Parliament to pass the Amnesty Act in 1977. The law includes amnesty for all political prisoners, but alsoan amnesty for the crimes of the dictatorship, deciding it was best to forget the past and move forward.

“The silence of others” champions those who cannot forgive or forget, like human rights lawyer Carlos Slepoy and José María Galante. In their efforts to retain justice, they prosecute for crimes against humanity. Don’t miss out and viewing this colorful depiction of the small battles of those who cannot surrender their moral ideals.


 March 25 from 18:30 - at Cinema "Faces" (Trakia district)
