FRANCO ON TRIAL: THE SPANISH NUREMBERG
Spanien, Deutschland 2018 – Director: Lucía Palacios, Dietmar Post – Original with English subtitles, Q&A with Dietmar Post (Co-Director)
In 2010 a Buenos Aires judge issued several international arrest warrants against high-ranking representatives of the Franco dictatorship in court proceedings that became known as the “Argentinian Trials.” This was something completely new – due to the “Amnesty Law,” all the perpetrators had remained at large until then. The film follows the attempts to finally bring them to justice. Samay Claro
