THE SILENCE OF OTHERS nominated for European Documentary 2018
Berlin, November 26, 2018 - THE SILENCE OF OTHERS by Almudena Carracedo and Robert Bahar is one of the five documentaries nominated for ‘European Documentary 2018’.
The ‘European Documentary 2018’ will be announced during the European Film Awards ceremony on 15 December in Seville.
THE SILENCE OF OTHERS reveals the epic struggle of victims of Spain’s 40-year dictatorship, who continue to seek justice to this day. Filmed over six years with intimate access to the plaintiffs and lawyers in the groundbreaking “Argentine Lawsuit”, The Silence of Others follows survivors as they fight a state-imposed amnesia of crimes against humanity, and explores a country still divided four decades into democracy.
The documentary by Almudena Carracedo and Robert Bahar received the Panorama Audience Award for best documentary and the Friedensfilmpreis Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung at this year´s Berlinale.
