Executive produced by Pedro Almodóvar, THE SILENCE OF OTHERS charts the epic struggle of victims of Spain's 40-year dictatorship under General Franco, who continue to seek justice to this day. For six years, the film follows survivors as they organize the groundbreaking 'Argentine Lawsuit' and fight a state-imposed amnesia of crimes against humanity, while exploring a country still divided four decades into democracy. The Lawsuit is making history: what started as a small, grassroots effort has yielded the first-ever arrest warrants for perpetrators, including torturers, cabinet ministers and doctors implicated in cases of stolen children, while stirring a flurry of international attention. Interestingly, Spain pioneered universal jurisdiction to bring down Pinochet. Premiered at Berlinale, where it won Panorama Documentary Award and Berlinale Peace Film Prize.
