ABOUT THE FILM

Seven years in the making, this courageous and deeply moving film shows what happens when crimes against humanity are deliberately buried. Ripped apart by civil war and four decades under Franco, Spain has since espoused a “pact of forgetting,” granting amnesty to both sides and refusing to discuss the horrors of the past. But those who suffered imprisonment and torture dare to demand the truth, struggling against state-imposed amnesia for justice and reconciliation, in a country still divided four decades into democracy. Shortlisted for the Oscars and winner of multiple festival awards, including the Grand Jury Award at Sheffield Doc/Fest.
