When the Lives of Others came out in Germany some years back, people from the GDR, Germany's former East, were offended by the fact that the director had invented a "good Stasi man". None were on record.

Now, a documentary film called the Silence of Others is produced and it seems that again, fiction is applied to a subject whose victims need nothing more than restitution of the soul or some recognition that society has understood their plight.

When I read Aitana Vargas' polite response to an article published in The New Yorker in which she carefully mentioned that the corpse shown in the film was not her grandfather's, it summed up my problem with this type of human rights entertainment.

I find it irresponsible when news about such films are published by independent media without at least offering a comparison to other films which take on the subject in a more honest way and without trying to mollify the facts. In our times of outcry about fake news that seems hypocritical. Therefore I suggest to comparatively deal with Franco on Trial, a film I saw before the Silence of Others. It tells the same story, just better. In The Silence of Others there is almost no historical and judicial contextualization of the crimes committed in Spain. Victims and the crimes against them are depoliticized. Franco on Trial on the other hand shows the victims with respect for their suffering and also some perpetrators which is the hardest nut for documentarists to crack. The perpetrators are absent from the other film. In my opinion Franco on Trial is the more complete film that doesn't fall into the trap of fake news where emotions count more than data and facts.
