Calls for justice mostly fall on stony ground in The Silence of Others, a stirring documentary about the victims of Spanish dictator Gen. Francisco Franco and their ongoing fight to extract some kind of legal payback.

Nov 12, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It's a powerful, meticulously constructed and empathetic documentary which highlights a travesty most people outside of Spain won't be aware of.

The Silence of Others must be seen on the big screen where we can appreciate its beautiful imagery and sound, and give our complete concentration to its momentous story about a country that should not forget its history.

Bahar and Carracedo not only successfully deliver the narrative details of their real-life drama, but adequately provide the context we need to appreciate its socio-political resonance.
