Description

In Almudena Carracedo and Robert Bahar's riveting documentary, the lasting ramifications of General Franco's 40-year dictatorship of Spain is laid bare. Focusing on the remaining victims and survivors, the film follows the civilian's fight to move forward in a country still coming to grips with a new democracy. Refusing to accept the erasure of the past, the victims put forth the "Argentine Lawsuit", which seeks to keep the truth and depth of General Franco's crimes against humanity from being shuffled out of the public consciousness. As is made clear throughout the film, the importance of remembrance, of both the lives lost and the horrors committed by the Franco regime, is paramount in protecting the future. Standing against the forced silence, the survivors create a determined movement that refuses to stand down against the injustice of forgetting what must never be allowed to return.
