Dir. Petra Costa. 2019, 113 mins. In English and Portuguese with English subtitles. A cautionary tale for these times of democracy in crisis, The Edge of Democracy nimbly fuses the personal and political 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, as well as their emergent rival Jair Bolsonaro—with accounts of her own family’s complex political and industrial past, filmmaker Petra Costa (Elena) witnesses their rise and fall and the tragically polarized nation that remains.Buy tickets/get more info now
