About the episode
Where does a silence begin?
In Spain, in 1977, there was an amnesty law that pardoned politically motivated crimes committed in the past – not all of them, but we will talk about that in other episodes. And so, in our country, it was decided that this was the way to look forward and forget the past. The limits of memory were also defined, of what to remember and what not to remember, and lines were drawn that could not be crossed.
But there was a film, and a director, who dared to cross those lines. At a very, very high price. Today’s episode talks about a silence that, perhaps unbeknownst to you, marked the way we talk about our recent past… or not. The first “we don’t talk about that” of our democracy.
