- 2 years ago
Tuesday night at the News and Documentary Emmy Awards, SDFF 2019 Official Selection, The Silence of Others, won two Emmys. Filmmakers Almudena Carracedo and Robert Bahar garnered one Emmy for Best Documentary and a second for Outstanding Politics and Government Documentary.
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 victims and survivors as they organize the groundbreaking “Argentine Lawsuit” and fight a state-imposed amnesia of crimes against humanity, in a country still divided four decades into democracy.
The Silence of Others appeared as Episode 11 of PBS’s POV Season 32, and will be available on the PBS website for free until 10/08. It is also available on Netflix.
