Through the lens of Western media, the political upheaval in Brazil has been a story of corruption and transformation. But in THE EDGE OF DEMOCRACY, filmmaker Petra Costa charts the unfolding political landscape of Brazil to explore one of the most dramatic periods in her country’s history by bridging the personal and the political. With unprecedented access to Presidents Dilma Rousseff and Lula da Silva, Costa explores the rise and fall of both leaders and the tragically polarized nation that remains. Costa captures this crucial moment in history, and delivers a stunning cautionary tale for these times of democratic crisis.
