Human Rights Film Series: The Silence of Others

  • 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM
  • Room 104, College Hall

Directed by Almudena Carracedo and Robert Bahar. This story reveals the epic struggle of victims of Spain's 40-year dictatorship under General Franco, who continue to seek justice to this day. Filmed over six years, the film follows the survivors as they organize the groundbreaking 'Argentine Lawsuit' and fight a state-imposed amnesia of crimes against humanity, and explores a country still divided four decades into democracy.
