The European Film Festival was officially opened yesterday in Novi Sad, with the screening of the Spanish film “The Silence of Others” at Brod Teatar at 9 pm.
“The Silence of Others”, backed by Pedro Almodóvar as a producer, seeks to end amnesia over dictator Franco’s victims who are still seeking justice to this day. Filmed over the course of six years, the film follows survivors while they are preparing the revolutionary “Argentine lawsuit” and fighting against the silence about the crimes against humanity while portraying a country that is still divided after four decades of democracy.
