ACT Year-Round film screening: The Silence of Others

    • The Lyric and the ACT Human Rights Film Festival are teaming up once again for an ACT Year-Round screening!
      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. The Silence of Others is the second documentary feature by Emmy-winning filmmakers Almudena Carracedo and Robert Bahar (Made in L.A.). Executive Produced by Pedro Almodóvar, Agustín Almodóvar, and Esther García. Tickets are $10 GA, $8 students and seniors.
