THE SILENCE OF OTHERS


Dir Almudena Carracedo & Robert Bahar
2018| Spain|USA |93 min.


The victory of Generalissimo Franco in Spain in 1939 cleared the way for fascism’s meteoric acceptance in the Europe of the nineteen-thirties. What Franco could get away with gave strength to Hitler and Mussolini. A civilian population blanket-bombed (with the aid of Nazi planes) was the first example of what is now common practice. In this mesmerising film, produced by famed Spanish director Pedro Almodovar, the survivors of human- rights abuses of horrifying dimensions battle to bring their persecutors to justice. After 40 years of Franco’s rule, the Spanish government still imposes an amnesia on the past, making it impossible to prosecute historical abuses . The film follows the participants in the historic Argentine Lawsuit who prosecute the abuses in Spain from beyond the borders. An inspiring film and a tribute to the tenacity of those who will not relent.


 


A NIGHT IN THE GADREN


Dir.  Marshall Curry


2017|USA|7 minutes


Shocking archive footage of 20 000 American Nazis filling Madison Square Gardens in New York in 1939. Outside 50 000 Communists and non-Nazis protested. The footage is, in the style of the time, magnificently shot, which further underlines the horror of it all.
