Description The Silence of Others 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. Seven years in the making, The Silence of Others is the second documentary feature by Emmy-winning filmmakers Almudena Carracedo and Robert Bahar (Made in L.A.). It is being Executive Produced by Pedro Almodóvar, Agustín Almodóvar, and Esther García.

As the opening credits to this documentary draw to a close, the viewer is treated to an image of a man on a road, smoking a cigarette. The image cuts to a close up of the man, holding a flower, his eyes glazed over, but staring intently at the camera. The film proceeds as if he is some kind of hallucination, like some kind of alien who speaks English and French. The film never explains why the man is in the hospital, but it is clear that he is suffering from an undisclosed illness. The viewer is treated to interviews with his doctors, and friends. As the camera pans through the hospital, we are shown various rooms, and he is shown in various stages of recovery. The scene moves from one room to another, with some of the rooms shown in close-ups, such as the examining room. The patients, like the man, are all treated as if they were other people. Their voices are recorded in Spanish, and they are then read in English. After the screening, the doctors told the audience that the man was suffering from terminal cancer, and that he would have died had it not been for the film. They explained that the man, named Jose A., was in his late 30s when he had an accident, and was driving drunk. He was taken to the hospital, where doctors began to treat him with chemo and radiation. Jose was never to see his daughter again, and the film ends with the young man's sister telling the audience that the man is gone. Jose, it seems, has gone to his death in his own way, as though he is never coming back.
