London Spanish Film Festival Spring Weekend


Filmed over six years, this documentary follows the struggles of familiars of victims of the Franco regime in Spain as they organise the ground breaking Argentine Lawsuit. They are fighting at the same time against the agreement to “forget” that came with democracy and its amnesia of crimes against humanity. The tragic cases of men and women killed and buried in hidden mass graves, those of newborns being taken away from their mothers for a state-run eugenics program and the impact on the lives of their families are unveiled in a well-crafted and informative film that enables us to see how the country is still divided forty years into democracy. The film has been produced by the Almodóvar brothers.
