From Franco to Assad: No Peace Without Justice. Talk after film.
Talk following the screening of The Silence of Others
Forty years after the end of Franco’s dictatorship, Spaniards continue to fight for justice.
In Syria, hundreds of thousands have been arbitrary detained and forcibly disappeared, the vast majority at the hands of the Assad regime. Driven by an uncompromising belief in human rights, Syrians are organizing to find, free and demand justice for their loved ones.
Inspired by the many justice seekers before them from Argentina to Bosnia and Spain, Syrians recognize that this is a lifelong struggle.
This panel addresses questions on confronting the past, dealing with inter-generational trauma and reckoning with the legacy of ruthless dictators and their regimes.
