Join Defend Democracy in Brazil on Saturday, February 8 for a free screening of the Oscar-nominated Netflix documentary Edge of Democracy (2019) followed by a panel discussion.
A cautionary tale for these times of democracy in crisis, the personal and political fuse in The Edge of Democracy to explore one of the most dramatic periods in Brazilian history. Combining unprecedented access to Presidents Lula da Silva and Dilma Rousseff with accounts of her own family’s complex political and industrial past, filmmaker Petra Costa witnesses their rise and fall and the tragically polarized nation that remains.
