FASCISM REVISITED? DIAGNOSING THE RISE OF EUROPEAN POPULISM

FILM SCREENING - 'THE SILENCE OF OTHERS'

17 May 2019 - 13:30 - 16:45
Introduction

What’s going wrong in the EU, and how can Europe become a lot better in tackling the issue of the rise in populism?

The aim of the event is to harness the power of 'The Silence of Others' an award-winning, cutting-edge documentary on the major global challenge: the “amnesia” to the horrors of the past and the disturbing trend we are seeing across the world leading to populism.

How much do we know about this issue, and what can we actually do to tackle it on a European level? 

The Silence of Others reveals the epic struggle fought by the victims of dictatorship under General Franco in Spain. The film follows victims and survivors as they organise a ground-breaking lawsuit against their own Spanish state. Over six years they fight the state enforced amnesia of crimes against humanity, as they continue to seek justice.

The film screening will be followed by an inspiring debate moderated by Dharmendra Kanani, Director of Insights at Friends of Europe

This event is taking place within the context of the Wake Up Europe Festival taking place across Europe between 17-19 May 2019.
