Online: The Silence of Others (2018) Film Screening
3:30 pm to 6:00 pm
Sponsored by:
European Studies Center and European Union Center of Excellence

As part of the ESC's Year of Memory and Politics Series, we will hold a screening of The Silence of Others. The film 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, it 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.

Following the screening, a panel discussion will be held featuring Pablo Fernandez-Vazquez (Department of Political Science), Cristina Blanco Sío-López (Marie Sklodowska Curie Senior Global Fellow), and Jae-Jae Spoon (Department of Political Science).
