The Edge of Democracy

A screening of “The Edge of Democracy” with filmmaker Petra Costa

A cautionary tale for these times of democracy in crisis, the personal and political fuse to explore one of the most dramatic periods in Brazilian history. Combining unprecedented access to leaders past and present, including Presidents Dilma Rousseff and Lula da Silva, with accounts of her own family's complex past, filmmaker Petra Costa (ELENA) witnesses their rise and fall and the tragically polarized nation that remains.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with director, Petra Costa.
