See the Berkeley, CA theatrical premiere of The Silence of Others / El Silencio de Otros at the Rialto Cinemas Elmwood.
A cautionary tale about fascism and the dangers of forgetting the past. Emmy-winning filmmakers Almudena Carracedo and Robert Bahar follow a movement that begins in a kitchen and evolves into a groundbreaking international lawsuit, bringing together hundreds of victims and survivors who have broken Spains pact of silence. The film raises profound questions about how societies grapple with legacies of state violence and what to do with perpetrators of crimes against humanity in their midst.
