THE EDGE OF DEMOCRACY

Blending the personal, poetic and political, filmmaker Petra Costa charts the unfolding political landscape of Brazil to explore one of the most dramatic periods in her country's history. With unprecedented access to Presidents Dilma Rousseff and Lula da Silva, Petra explores the rise and fall of both leaders and the tragically polarised nation that remains. The film not only captures this crucial moment in history but serves as a cautionary tale for these times of democratic crisis.
