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.
Born in Madrid, Spain, Almudena Carracedo has developed her professional career in the US, where she directed her debut feature film, the Emmy-winning documentary Made in L.A. Prior to Made in L.A., she directed the short documentary Welcome, A Docu-Journey of Impressions. In 2012 she returned to Spain to begin work on The Silence of Others.
Born in Philadelphia, Robert Bahar lives and works between Madrid, Spain and Brooklyn, New York. He won an Emmy as producer/writer of the documentary Made in L.A., and he spearheaded the three-year impact campaign that brought the film to audiences around the world. Prior to Made in L.A., he produced and directed the documentary Laid to Waste, and line produced several independent films.
