The Silence of Others

Oppgjørets time for fortielsen etter Francos Spania.

En sjokkerende historie om hvordan mangelen på et rettsoppgjør etter Franco-regimets diktatur i Spania har tvunget hundretusenvis av ofre og pårørende til å tie om sine skjebner, helt fram til i dag. Et vendepunkt kom i 2010, da en gruppe modige ofre og pårørende samlet omgikk det spanske rettssystemet, med bistand fra en argentinsk domstol, og anklaget tidligere maktpersoner for forbrytelser mot menneskeheten. Vi følger rettssaken og et voksende antall anklagere gjennom seks år. Dokumentaren er produsert av Pedro Almodóvar og har vunnet en rekke priser.

In English

A shocking history about how the lack of justice after the dictatorship of Franco’s regime in Spain has forced hundreds of thousands of victims and their families to stay silent about their destinies, up until today. A turning point came in 2010, when a group of courageous survivors and their families gathered and circumvented the Spanish justice system, with aid from an Argentinian court, where they accused former people of power for crimes against humanity. We follow the court and a growing number of plaintiffs through six years. The documentary is produced by Pedro Almodóvar, and has won several awards.

Samtale etter filmen: From Franco to Assad: no peace without justice

In Syria, hundreds of thousands have been arbitrary detained and forcibly disappeared, the vast majority at the hands of the Assad regime. Driven by an uncompromising belief in human rights, Syrians are organizing to find, free and demand justice for their loved ones. Inspired by the many justice seekers before them from Argentina to Bosnia and Spain, Syrians recognize that this is a lifelong struggle.

Forty years after the end of Franco’s dictatorship, Spaniards continue to fight for justice. They find no peace in the silence of others and still navigate painful pathways to reconcile with the horrors of the past and the state-imposed amnesia of the present.

This panel addresses questions on confronting the past, dealing with inter-generational trauma and reckoning with the legacy of ruthless dictators and their regimes.

Speakers are:

  • Omar Mansouri, a former Syrian detainee and a human rights activist
  • Hala Ghawi, member of Families for Freedom
  • Almudena Carracedo and Robert Bahar – co-directors of Silence of Others.
